Two days ago, YIMBY reported on filings for seven townhouses at 90-96 Amity Street, in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood, and now it appears that number will increase by one. Yesterday, additional applications were filed for a home at 88 Amity Street, which will match its neighbors in terms of scope, measuring about 4,000 square feet. Romines Architecture is the architect of record, while Fortis Property Group is the developer. A closed hospital building must first be demolished before work can begin.
Fortis Property Group will spend the next year or two haggling with the city and the Cobble Hill community over its plan to build towers as tall as 40 stories on the former Long Island College Hospital campus. But in the meantime, the developer is moving forward with smaller pieces of the project, by filing plans for a new crop of townhouses at 88 Amity Street, between Henry and Hicks Streets.
