Candor Clarendon Holdings LLC is behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a three-story mixed-use building at 104 Kenilworth Place, in Flatbush, Brooklyn. The project will rise two blocks away from the Flatbush Avenue Subway Station, the end of the line for the 2 and 5 trains, and three blocks away from the Brooklyn College campus. Y & G Realty NY will be responsible for the development.
New construction doesn’t happen often in Ditmas Park, because the city has protected most blocks from development with zoning that only allows the construction of one- or two-family homes. But near the border with Flatbush, new apartment buildings are allowed to sprout.
Most of Ditmas Park’s freestanding Victorians are protected by low-density zoning or landmarking, but there’s one at the corner of East 18th Street and Foster Avenue that’s primed for development.
