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.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Act of God not related to under construction, purely developed. (Thanks to Andrew Nelson)

  2. Why is NYC zoning encouraging driving with all these parking requirements for sites that are so close to subways. Then when traffic gets bad, the usual NIMBY complaints about overcrowding and traffic invariably follows, which then leads to more downzonings and fighting large projects. Retarded.

    Two different addresses named for the project. Please revise.

    This building is constructed very poorly. Owner/developer cuts all corners to save money. Carpentry work is horrible. High end look with low end installations.

    Would never pay what they are asking not to mention live in this building. I question if all construction is in compliance with building codes. Many delays and issues during construction.

    Location is the only key attribute for this buidling
