Applications filed last December at 504-524 Myrtle Avenue, in Clinton Hill, called for a six-story, 92-unit mixed-use building, but DNAinfo reports the unit count has increased, and the project will now stand eight stories tall.

HTO Architects is designing, and Silverstone Property Group is developing.
Time Equities plans to convert The Venetian, a five-story, 33-unit rental building at 447 Avenue P in the southwestern corner of Midwood, into condominiums.

The building, located a block away from the Avenue P stop on the F line, also has 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.
