It’s been two and a half years since Hudson Companies filed plans for a 170-unit development at 310 Clarkson Avenue in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Now, the market-rate rental project is finally on the rise between Nostrand and New York avenues, along the border with East Flatbush.
Tectonic snapped the these two shots with a drone yesterday, and the eight-story concrete structure has reached its full height, topping out at eighty feet. The L-shaped building wraps around Nostrand Avenue and appears to include a backyard, which will either be used for parking or recreational space.
When it’s finished, 310 Clarkson (also known as 1299 Nostrand Avenue) will have 137,068 square feet of residential space and 8,400 square feet of ground floor retail. Apartments will range from studios to three-bedrooms and include central heating and cooling, stainless steel appliances, and in-unit washer/dryers, according to Hudson’s website.
The building will also come equipped with a slew of luxury amenities, including a gym, yoga room, landscaped roof deck, private storage, and a lounge. The ground floor will host a covered, 85-car parking garage, which fulfills the parking requirements for city zoning.
Jonathan Kirschfeld Architect designed the building, which will feature a large wall of recessed windows at the corner of Nostrand and Clarkson.
Future tenants will be able to hop on the 2 and 5 trains two blocks away at Winthrop Street, and SUNY Downstate Medical Center and Kings County Hospital are only half a block away.
Construction on 310 Clarkson Avenue is scheduled to wrap in the spring of 2017. Next door at 350 Clarkson, site work has begun for a 250-unit, market-rate rental project designed by CetraRuddy. Together, the two developments will bring 420 apartments to a block that was once filled with warehouses and garages.
To the west, Hudson is putting the final touches on its controversial, 23-story tower at 626 Flatbush Avenue, recently christened “The Parkline” for its unmatched views of Prospect Park.
The Union Square-based builder picked up the assemblage that became 310 Clarkson for $10 million back in 2014, and later paid $13.1 million for the lots next door. The whole swath of properties was once zoned for manufacturing. Then in 2009, the previous developer secured a residential rezoning, after approaching the city with plans to develop three buildings with 280 condos.
Update: YIMBY mistakenly reported that 350 Clarkson was partially affordable. The developer has informed us that the building is entirely market-rate, and we have corrected this post accordingly.
