Local developers have submitted detailed plans to the Department of City Planning for the construction of a nine-story mixed-use building in Flatbush, Brooklyn. The proposed site is located at 1620 Cortelyou Road and currently supports a mix of commercial businesses including a Key Foods supermarket, a laundromat, a take-out restaurant, and a small deli.
While the documents do not confirm the design architect for the project, the applicant credited to the development is Tony Doleh, representative for 1600/20 Realty Corp.
If approved, the building would comprise 82,962 square feet. Plans include 9,560 square feet of ground-floor commercial area split between a new grocery store and a small retail component. The cellar level of the structure includes parking accommodations for 44 vehicles with an entryway on 16th street.
The residential component will occupy the second through ninth floors, spanning approximately 73,402 square feet. This includes a mix of seven studios, 52 single-bedroom units, and 26 two-bedroom units. Out of the 85 total apartments, 25 percent will be designated affordable homes for households earning 40 to 60 percent of the area’s median income.
At this time, the Department of City Planning’s Environmental Assessment and Review Division has determined that the project would not result in potentially significant adverse environmental impacts. Pending approvals from the Department of Buildings, the development is expected to be completed by 2022.
