Concrete has reached the third floor at 805 Washington Heights, a residential project rising in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The building is now expected to become a nine-story residential, part of a revision to the permits made in April of this year. This comes after the permits reflected downsizing to six stories when we reported on it in October. Levi Balkany of Happy Living Development is responsible for the applications.
The 99-foot tall structure will yield 46,640 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 6,320 square feet dedicated to a grocery store to replace the demolished Key Foods. The cellar will provide space for 19 vehicle parking spaces, as well as bicycle parking space and accessory storage.
37 apartments will be created, averaging 1260 square feet apiece, indicating that they will be condominiums. Residents on the top floor will benefit from private terraces, and a shared terrace will crown the project.
The site is just two blocks away from the Brooklyn Museum, and its adjacent subway station, serviced by 2 and 3 trains. Other subways nearby include the 4, 5, and S trains. DJLU Architects is responsible for the design.
With the current pace of construction, topping out can be expected before winter, and move-ins by next year.
