A new 18-story tower could take shape at the busy intersection of Atlantic and Vanderbilt Avenues in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The development site comprises seven neighboring lots and is referred to as 840 Atlantic Avenue.

Before construction can begin, the Department of City Planning will need to approve zoning text amendments to permit the construction of a dense mixed-use building. If approved, the structure would comprise over 376,000 square feet including a mix of rental apartments, retail space, a community facility, and a 90-vehicle sub-grade parking garage.

IMC Architecture produced the massing diagrams, renderings, and drawings, and is currently working on rezoning the effected lots.

Residential area, which accounts for a majority of building floor space, will comprise 312,917 square feet and up to 316 units. A maximum of 95 apartments will be marketed below rate as affordable homes.

The retail component will span a portion of the first and second floors with a total area of 55,715 square feet. The community facilities have not been specified but will also occupy the lower levels of the building and max out at 7,800 square feet.

  8. Can I please have Application please for 1 bedroom thanks

  9. Every time there is a mention of affordable housing some dumb ass always puts In an application in the comments section. So here is my application

  10. Yes!! Hallelujah! I ride by there every day and I’m so ready to see that disgusting McDonald’s go! I really hope they get the necessary approvals. This building will blend in perfectly w Pacific Park and the residential tower going up across Atlantic. Atlantic Ave is very slowly realizing its tremendous potential (though it still has a long way and many ramshackle buildings to go).
