It was back in September of 2014 that YIMBY brought you news of permits being filed by John Catsimatidis’s Red Apple Group for a 32-story mixed-use tower at 86 Fleet Place, between Willoughby Street and Myrtle Avenue, in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, thanks to photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, we can see that the building is at least one floor above the ground.
The building will eventually rise 351 feet and encompass 393,953 square feet. Of that, 383,140 square feet will be devoted to residential use. With 440 units, that works out to an average size of nearly 871 square feet.
Apartments will start on the third floor with 19 units, followed by 20 units each on the fourth through sixth floors, 15 units each on floors seven through 25, 12 units each on the 26th floor and floors 28 through 30, and five units each on floors 31 and 32.
There will be parking on-site, though the number is unclear. The new building permit lists 184, but only 143 are listed on the Schedule A. The Schedule A does list space for 220 bicycles.
Other amenities will include storage, a fitness center, a lounge, a party room, a multi-purpose room, tenant recreation space, and a kids room. There will also be a roof terrace.
As we said, the building will be mixed-use and that other use is retail. There will 10,813 square feet of it on the first floor.
The design, by Goldstein Hill & West, will feature several setbacks and a curved corner where Fleet meets Myrtle.
The location will be nearby several subway options, including the B/Q/R at DeKalb Av, the A/C/R at Jay St-MetroTech, the 2/3/4/5 at Nevins St, and the G at Hoyt-Schermerhorn.
86 Fleet Place isn’t the only Downtown Brooklyn project from the Red Apple Group that’s making progress. Just last week, we showed you that The Margo, at 180 Myrtle Avenue (literally across the street), is almost done.
