Developers are always looking further east and south for cheap property in Brooklyn, and a combination of generous zoning and inexpensive land have encouraged several new residential projects in East Flatbush. One of those developments is set to rise at 309 Lenox Road, between Nostrand and New York Avenues.
Plans were filed yesterday for a seven-story apartment building on the quiet block just beyond the borders of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. The 70-foot-tall structure will hold 26 apartments and 19,294 square feet of residential space. Average units will measure roughly 740 square feet, and both the size and location mean rentals are a solid bet.
Each floor will hold three to four units. And an eight-car garage will take up most of the cellar.
The developer is Isaac Stern, with a business address in Borough Park, and Rego Park-based architect Diego Aguilera applied for the permits.
Two large, single-family homes will bite the dust for the new development. The 6,000-square-foot site last changed hands for an undisclosed amount in 2012.
