Excavation work is getting started at 22 Chapel Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The ground-up, 20-story rental complex is designed by CetraRuddy and developed by Delshah Capital and OTL Enterprises. The superstructure will rise 211 feet high above Flatbush Avenue and sit between Chapel Street and Cathedral Place. A total of 133,181 square feet of residential space will be created and spread among 180 units.
22 Chapel Street
When Robert Moses built the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in the 1950s, he pushed the area between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge approaches even further into isolation, hemming it in on all sides with highways. But OTL Enterprises managed to snag a large and favorably zoned parcel at 22 Chapel Street, just off Flatbush Avenue Extension. Now they’ve filed plans to erect a 20-story, mixed-use building on the lot, which is bounded on the other two sides by Cathedral Place and Jay Street.
