Revealed: 925 Atlantic Avenue, Clinton Hill

Boaz Gilad has become one of the most prolific developers in central Brooklyn, and today we have a look at his latest project, a seven-story residential building planned for 925 Atlantic Avenue in Clinton Hill.

The rendering comes from RoArt, who also designed Gilad’s developments in Flatbush and Park Slope. This building seems less flashy than either of those projects, and it might fit in with the varied architecture along Atlantic Avenue. The development is divided into three different sections and fenced in with odd, Corten steel-colored walls.

When construction wraps, 925 Atlantic Avenue will hold 25 apartments and 17,167 square feet of residential space. Average units will measure about 690 square feet, which strongly suggests rentals. There will be a gym on the ground floor and bike storage in the cellar. Residents will also get to enjoy a shared terrace on the seventh floor. Two first-floor units will be duplexes with private yards, and one apartment on the sixth floor will come with a private balcony.

Feingold and Gregory Architects are the architects of record. They filed plans back in September, but the DOB hasn’t approved permits yet.

A car repair shop currently occupies the lot between Washington and Grand avenues. Demolition permits have been filed, but not yet approved, to knock down the little structure.

Gilad’s firm, Brookland Capital, picked up the 5,000-square-foot lot for $4.8 million last summer. That works out to $280 for each square foot of its planned building.

  1. The row of flowers very nice, balance of materials and green color.

  2. It’s too bad the ground floor is “walled off” on a commercial street. It would be nice if Atlantic could evolve into a good mix of commercial and retail uses over time since the stretch past Barclays stitches together Fort Greene, Prospect Heights, Clinton Hill, Bed Stuy, and Crown Heights. For several years on 4th Avenue, new buildings were built with nothing on the ground floor – parking, vents, etc. Now that that avenue has so many new apartments, it’s a tragedy that whole sections of it don’t have stores and other neighborhood uses. It would be a shame if the same happens to Atlantic Avenue.

  3. I agree, it’s really dumb and short sighted to not creat commercial space on ground floor. The rental income will keep common charges low for future home owners. Or developer could sell them as commercial condos too. Retails will just be good for the area, which lacks retails.
