The squat two-story commercial building that once filled the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street has been completely demolished. Back in April, the Post reported that Slate Property Group and and Meadow Partners closed on the purchase of the site at 1 Flatbush Avenue for a record-breaking $59 million, and it looks like work is moving right along.
Property owner Mendel Gold has filed applications for a five-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 140 Stanhope Street, in central Bushwick, two blocks before the M train’s Knickerbocker Avenue stop. The building will measure a total 10,720 square feet, and will feature nearly 2,100 square feet of retail and 425 square feet of community space on the ground floor. Units will average 850 square feet. Dutchess County-based Aryeh Siegel is the architect of record, and an existing two-story, single-family structure must first be demolished.
The eight-story, 45,000 square-foot mixed-use office building at 880 Bergen Avenue, in Jersey City’s Journal Square, has been purchased for $5.6 million by Bergen Academy Associates.

GRID Real Estate and CBRE marketed the property.
Zolo Construction & Development Inc. has filed applications for a five-story, nine-unit residential building at 390 Leonard Street, in northern Williamsburg, six blocks from the L train’s Lorimer St. stop. The building will measure 6,745 square feet in residential space, which means units will average 750 square feet. Murat Simsek’s engineering service Rocda is the applicant of record, and the existing two-story townhouse, apparently dating back to 1899, must first be demolished.
Yan Po Zhu, the developer of a planned 12-story, 69-unit mixed-use building at 208 Delancey Street on the Lower East Side, is selling the construction site — currently four stories up in steel framing — for $35.5 million. According to Bowery Boogie, the 67,300 square-foot building is being designed by Michael Kang, and an 8,350 square-foot community facility is expected to occupy the ground floor. Construction stalled out roughly a year ago.
