Permits Filed for 1000 Union Street, Crown Heights, Brooklyn

The revitalization of Crown Heights continues apace, and now new building applications have been filed for a site spanning 998-1000 Union Street, one block south of the Franklin Avenue stop on the 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains. The development will rise seven floors and total 23,569 square feet, to be split between 20 apartments. With a generous average size of almost 1,200 square feet, that likely portends condominiums. Fariba Makooi of Fariba Makooi Architects PLLC is listed as the site’s architect, although the contact information points to Karl Fischer, and the project is being developed by Gal Nagar of HML Developments. Demolition permits for the existing structure were filed in July.
