Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 302 81st Street in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Located on the corner of Third Avenue and 81st Street, the lot is four blocks south of the 77th Street subway station, serviced by the R train. Meridian Properties is listed as the owner behind the applications.

The proposed 50-foot-tall development will yield 31,959 square feet, with 21,606 square feet designated for residential space and 260 square feet for commercial space. The building will have 32 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 675 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar and a 43-foot-long rear yard.

S. Wieder Architect is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

    THIS is the kind of lot we need to see being developed. There should be a vacancy surcharge on vacant properties and surface parking lots. It’s ridiculous to keep destroying our history when there is a lot of land for development in every borough.

    • Exactly right. A very positive thing about the last 25 years in NYC is the thousands of infill developments, many of them of good quality.

    This is a necessary parking lot for the grocery store across the street. Bay Ridge doesn’t need this; especially not from a regular on the annual NYC Worst Slumlord list.

  3. The lot is not truly vacant. It is the parking lot for the supermarket directly across 3rd Ave. Before that, it was a gas station that had been closed for 5 years.

  4. Another terrible blow To Bay Ridge – just what we need, more tall buildings and less open space and parking space. It’s a horrible trend that has been going on for years. I’m sure this will cripple Brooklyn Market which used the space for its customers. Wish this could be stopped.

    Brooklyn Market has been a welcome addition to the neighborhood, and the “vacant space” across the street, now the parking lot used by customers, is a big draw. This new building may be a good idea to fill someone’s pockets, but the neighborhood doesn’t need it!

    they have been testing to soil for two years I think that was the hold up, as it was a gas station before that.
