After months of negotiations with the community, developer Avery Hall Investments has agreed to amendments to its two-building, mixed-use development planned at 120 Fifth Avenue, located on the corner of Baltic Street in Park Slope. When the plans were initially presented in February, YIMBY reported that the 196,000-square-foot project would include 165 residential units and 52,000 square feet of retail. Twenty-five percent, or 41 units, would rent at below-market rates through a lottery and 7,500 square feet of the retail space would be designated for a grocery store.
An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 814 Fifth Avenue, located at the corner of 33rd Street in Greenwood Heights. The project will measure 14,307 square feet and its residential units should average 990 square feet apiece. That means the apartments could be either rentals or condominiums. There will be a seven-car garage on the ground floor. Murat Mutlu’s Midtown South-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,016-square-foot site is occupied by two two-story townhouses. Demolition permit have not been filed. The 36th Street stop on the D, N, and R trains is three blocks away.

One apartment will be located on the ground and cellar floors, while the second unit will span the second through fourth floors. Sion Hourizadeh’s Floral Park, N.Y.-based Sion Consulting Engineering is the applicant of record. The site was most recently occupied by a four-story, three-unit structure that was demolished back in 2011.
