Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use structure at 350 Hicks Street, at the far northern corner of Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. The site is ten blocks away from the Borough Hall Subway Station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4 5 trains. Bergen Street is eleven blocks away, serviced by the F and G trains. Fortis Property Group will be responsible for the development.
YIMBY last reported on the project in December of 2016. Permits had been filed in 2016 for a 19-story building at the site by the same team. The project would have included 48 apartments, averaging 1,244 square feet apiece, indicating condominiums. The permit now differs significantly in scope, no longer peaking at 256 feet tall.
The newly proposed 95-foot tall structure will yield 116,500 square feet of space, with 58,770 square feet for community facility use. Most of the remaining space will be used for 242 parking spaces, also for use by the community facility, which will occupy much of the building including a lobby on the ground floor. It is expected to be used for medical purposes.
FXFOWLE Architects will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits were filed in early April 2016, and the process is now nearly finished. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
