Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 72 Congress Street in Brooklyn’s Columbia Street Waterfront District neighborhood. The interior lot, also addressed as 76 Congress Street, is located between Columbia Street and Hicks Street. A short walk away is the Bergen Street subway station, serviced by the F and G trains. Shiraz Sanjana under the 76 Congress LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The state Attorney General banned Shiraz Sanjana from selling condominiums for 16 months in 2014, but that didn’t stop the embattled developer from buying a development site at 695 6th Avenue in Greenwood Heights once the ban expired. Today, YIMBY has a look at the three-story apartment building rising at the corner of 21st Street.
Earlier this spring, YIMBY reported on a filings for a three-story, 32-unit residential building designed by Karl Fischer at 695-705 6th Avenue, in South Slope, and now developers Shiraz Sanjana and RNS Holdings have acquired the property, according to the Daily News. The site boasts 34,800 square feet of development rights, and the building on file measures 34,632 square feet, but we don’t know if Karl Fischer’s plans are still in store. Sanjana is planning condos, and the existing single-story warehouse must first be demolished.
