Three-Story, 45,300-Square-Foot Commercial Building Planned at 1039 Coney Island Avenue, Flatbush

A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for a three-story, 45,262-square-foot commercial building at 1039 Coney Island Avenue, located on the corner of Foster Avenue in the Ditmas Park section of Flatbush. The project will contain a total of 28,886 square feet of commercial space. There will be six retail units on the ground floor, followed by office space on the second and third floors. A 42-car garage will be located in the cellar, in addition to eight off-street parking spaces outside. Dal H. Chun’s Lower East Side-based engineering firm is the applicant of record. The 16,376-square-foot plot is currently home to a gas station. Demolition permits haven’t been filed.
