Gregory Maidman, operating under an LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 773 Hart Street, in northern Bushwick, three blocks from the M train’s Central Avenue stop.

Condominiums are most likely planned for the site, which boasts roughly 90,000 square feet of building potential.

Renovations should wrap by 2016.
