Permits have been filed for a two-tower, 17-story mixed-use building at 840 Atlantic Avenue in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Located between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street on Vanderbilt Avenue, the lot is near the 2, 3, 4, 5, N, Q, and R trains at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station, and the Long Island Railroad at Atlantic Terminal. Tom Li of Suzuki Capital is listed as the owner behind the applications. In September 2021, New York City Council approved proposals to construct a new 18-story mixed-use building, developed by Atlantic-Vanderbilt Holdings LLC and designed by IMC Architecture, with a mix of market-rate and income-restricted apartments, retail space, a community arts center, and a sub-grade parking garage.
The proposed 175-foot-tall development will yield 299,095 square feet, with 256,663 square feet designated for residential space, 33,632 square feet for commercial space, and 8,800 square feet for community facility space. The building will have 267 residences, most likely condos based on the average unit scope of 961 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar and 52 enclosed parking spaces.
Hamish Whitefield Architects is listed as the architect of record.
