Upper West Side-based Feingold & Gregory Architect is the applicant of record, and a single-story commercial building must first be demolished.

As Brooklyn’s rising rents pushed further south, Flatbush saw a flood of filings in the first few months of 2015.

Plans were filed yesterday to build a seven-story, 24-unit building at 1084 Rogers Avenue, between Cortelyou and Clarendon Roads and a short walk from the Beverly Road 2/5 stop.
