In the spring of 2014, the wrecking ball came for the Victorian mansion at 111 Clarkson Avenue in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Today, construction is chugging along on a pair of rental buildings at the site between Bedford and Rogers avenues.

Both buildings have reached five stories, but they’ll be a bit taller when they’re finished. The south side of the lot, along Clarkson Avenue, will hold an eight-story, 28-unit building with 22,944 square feet of residential space. The north side of the lot, 520 Parkside Avenue, will sprout a seven-story, 22-unit building with 19,297 square feet of residential space.

The apartments will be one-, two- and three-bedrooms, most of which will come with balconies. Amenities will include individual gardening plots, a gym, a roof deck with a barbecue, and a 19-car parking lot.

Seth Brown of Aspen Equities is developing the 50-unit project, and he’s hired Dome Architecture and Design to handle the design.

The rambling house that once occupied the through-block lot was full of elaborate, turn-of-the-century architectural details. But after 30 years of neglect, the house had succumbed to rot, and pigeons occupied the third floor. Brown purchased the property for $2,675,000 in 2013, salvaged what he could, and tore down the rest.

  1. Construction is not ready to performance public, until rental buildings with facade top-out soon.
