Back in December, Slate Property Group bought the former Green Point Savings Bank at 856 Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights for $6,500,000. Now new building applications have been filed to erect a 14-story condo project on the site between Lincoln Place and Eastern Parkway.
Last month, YIMBY reported on filings for two new buildings at 731 and 733 Bergen Street, between Underhill and Washington Avenues in Prospect Heights. Now we’ve got the first look at what will rise on the empty lot, which sits right next to Brookland Capital’s newly finished condos at 735 Bergen.
Excavation is imminent at 816 Washington Avenue, in Prospect Heights, where ELH Management is planning a five-story, eight-unit mixed-use building, according to Brownstoner. Located two blocks north of the Brooklyn Museum stop on the 2/3 trains, the eight apartments will be rented at below-market rates, and 3,135 square feet of retail space will span the ground floor. Dattner is designing, and the site’s former rent-regulated predecessor burnt down in 2010.
Bergen Street in Prospect Heights is a hub of construction activity, and two residential buildings will finally rise on one of the strip’s last vacant lots between Underhill and Washington Avenues. Owner Benny Shlaff hopes to build two nearly identical four-story developments at 731 and 733 Bergen Street.
The first condos hit the market last week at 550 Vanderbilt Avenue in the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park development, and YIMBY has a few attractive renderings of the building’s amenity spaces and lobby.
