Construction may soon break ground at 868-870 New York Avenue in Flatbush, Brooklyn, following approvals from New York City’s Department of Buildings. Designed by Opera Studios Architecture, the existing two-family, two-story structure will be completely redeveloped into a pair of multi-family properties.
Each structure will contain ten apartments, approximately 14,000 square feet, and will most likely debut as rental properties.
The existing structure at 868 New York Avenue will gain an additional four stories for a total height of six stories above ground with a top-floor penthouse. To increase accessibility, the building will also be outfitted with an elevator.
Preliminary renderings of the property reveal a simple white façade and dark gray window casing and cornices. Above the second floor, the front elevation sets back and protrudes in an undulating form that will add an elegant silhouette to New York Avenue. Many of the setback spaces will support outdoor patios and terraces with transparent glass barriers.
Trust Management Inc. is listed as owner of the property. Neither the development team nor the architect has specified an anticipated ground breaking or completion date.
