Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 1565 New York Avenue in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. The site is five blocks away from the Flatbush Avenue subway station, end of the line for 2 and 5 trains and commercial epicenter for the area. Ascher Berkowitz of Big Dream Developers will be responsible for the development.
The 63-foot tall structure will yield 20,120 square feet, with 14,870 square feet dedicated to residential use. 22 apartments will be created, averaging 675 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. Residents will have a lobby, a laundry room, and recreational space. Parking will be included for 11 vehicles and 11 bicycles.
Diego Aguilera Architects will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits for the attractive three-story structure were filed in May of this year, and may have already been carried out. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
