The last few years have brought a wave of new construction to Pacific Street in Prospect Heights and western Crown Heights. From townhouses to mid-rise condo buildings, the area is booming with expensive real estate that replaced garages and aging row houses. Now, YIMBY has a look at another project coming to the area at 953 Pacific Street, between Washington and Grand avenues.
The four-story building will have just three units and 3,984 square feet of residential space. The project will be condos, and typical apartments will measure a spacious 1,328 square feet. The first two units will be full-floor, topped by a penthouse duplex.
Flushing-based Suresh Manchanda of L&C Associates is listed as the architect on the permits, but a different firm may have created the rendering.
The facade will have two different materials—tan brick and white facade—with large, modern windows. While it’s disjointed, it’s reminiscent of another building in the neighborhood, the recently completed four-story development at 1444 Bedford Avenue a bit further east.
One of Brooklyn’s first net zero passive house condo projects was recently finished next door at 951 Pacific Street.
Bedford-Stuyvesant-based Infinity Properties is the developer. It’s unclear whether the firm owns the lot outright, but the 20-foot-wide lot last changed hands in March of 2015 for $1,150,000.
Rather amusingly, the developer’s website doesn’t refer to this area as Crown Heights. Instead, they call it the “up and coming Pacific Park,” which is the name of the huge, multi-building project Forest City Ratner and Greenland Group are developing a few blocks west, next to the Barclays Center.
