Fortis Property Group will spend the next year or two haggling with the city and the Cobble Hill community over its plan to build towers as tall as 40 stories on the former Long Island College Hospital campus. But in the meantime, the developer is moving forward with smaller pieces of the project, by filing plans for a new crop of townhouses at 88 Amity Street, between Henry and Hicks Streets.
The seven new homes would have addresses at 90A, 90B, 92A, 92B, 94A, 94B and 96 Amity Street. Six houses would reach four stories, and the seventh, at 96 Amity, would have five stories.
The buildings would hold nearly 33,000 square feet of residential space, for an average home measuring 4,714 square feet. Each single-family house would come with a roof deck and a garage for one car. There will also be a shared underground garage with 17 more spaces.
Romines Architecture will be responsible for the design.
A hulking 1960s hospital building currently occupies the 15,000-square-foot lot, and plans haven’t yet been filed to knock down the seven-story structure.
Fortis finally closed on its $240 million purchase of LICH last month. As part of that sale, 88 Amity changed hands for $12,226,000.
