Permits Filed: 640 Parkside Avenue, Medical/Storage Facility in Prospect Lefferts Gardens

In the fight over whether to rezone Prospect Lefferts Gardens in Brooklyn, a few industrially zoned blocks have become major sticking points. Activists have argued that a few highway-like blocks along Empire Boulevard, at the northwestern edge of the neighborhood, would produce high-rise development and gentrification if they were rezoned to allow new apartments. But there are two more industrial blocks at the southern end of the hood, on Parkside Avenue between Rogers and New York avenues, and now, a new building may replace an old warehouse there at 640 Parkside Avenue, between Rogers and Nostrand avenues.

Brooklyn-based property owner David Mosseri has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 287 Midwood Street, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, located four blocks from the Sterling Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains.

There will be two apartments per floor on the ground through second floors, followed by two units across both the third and fourth floors. David Nagan’s Fresh Meadows-based King David Architecture is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,000-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not yet been filed.

Three-Story, Three-Unit Residential Building Coming to 124 Sterling Street, Prospect Lefferts Gardens

Property owner Martin Forrester has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 124 Sterling Street, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, located two blocks from the Sterling Street stop on the 2/5 trains. The structure will measure 3,201 square feet, which means its full-floor residential units should average 1,067 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The ground floor apartment will be a duplex and will feature additional private space in the cellar. Brooklyn Navy Yard-based Freeform + Deform is the architect of record. The 2,575-square-foot corner site, at Bedford Avenue, was occupied by a four-story apartment building until it was demolished in 2006.

Construction Nears Home Stretch for The Parkline, 626 Flatbush Avenue, Prospect Lefferts Gardens

It was over a year ago YIMBY last checked in on the mixed-use project under construction at 626 Flatbush Avenue, between Fenimore Street and Hawthorne Street in Brooklyn’s Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood. At that time, the 23-story building had just topped out. Now, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, exterior work on the Marvel Architects-designed building is very close to done.
