Demolition is underway at 370 Livingston Street, the site of a 22-story residential building in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by NY Building Associates Inc. and developed by Yitzchok Katz of Developing NY State, the 235-foot-tall structure will span 186,076 square feet and yield 105 condominium units with an average scope of 1,703 square feet, as well as 7,162 square feet of commercial space, a cellar level, a 20-foot-long rear yard, 53 bicycle parking spaces on the third floor, and 57 enclosed parking spaces. The architect and developer are also responsible for the adjacent 362 Livingston Street, a 15-story residential building standing 150 feet tall and yielding 75 rental units with an average scope of 567 square feet, a cellar level, and a 27-foot-long side yard. The two properties sit by the intersection of Livingston Street and Flatbush Avenue.

Recent photographs show the building that formerly occupied the easternmost section of the city block fully razed. Dumpsters, a piling machine, and an excavator await the start of construction after the remaining abutting structures are demolished. YIMBY anticipates demolition will wrap up by the spring.

    When the engine started, you don’t forget to report. I have already been waiting its construction lines: Thanks to Michael Young.

  2. I know someone who used to live there—now priced out of this area. When I see stuff like this, I thank the gods that I live in a Landmarked area, where low-rise old buildings aren’t being torn down for enormous new ones.

    • The low-rise historic buildings in and near Downtown Brooklyn are more expensive per unit than the units in this 22-story tower will be.

  3. two thumbs down! always loved this curved building… why must everything be destroyed?

  4. I could be wrong but I don’t believe that the zoning mandated the developer to build any parking and yet the parking ratio is still 0.54! Not great in one of the most transit-rich areas of the city.

  5. Old, run down, and out of character with the neighborhood. Glad to see it go.

  6. Not a single rendering of the proposed building. I really hope the new design does not disappoint. The existing building was a beautiful structure that I was sad to see demolished.

  7. Definitely I live down the block. the building that was there by was old, run down I hope they take the rest of the building

  8. I hope that they make rooms big enough so you can feel like you’re at home, and not like you’re in a match box trying to catch your breath. As specialty for older people Just a little bit of space to moving room, they spend a lot time in the comfort of there apartment
