The charming, turn-of-the-century brick house at 185 Ocean Avenue (pre-demo, on right) is no longer. The building, which was the subject of an intense bidding war this spring, has been demolished, and in December the DOB approved plans for an eight-story, 20-unit property on the site. Across the Park, which has been covering 185 Ocean’s demise, says that we have received very few details about what will be built in its place – as we’ve said before, it had better not be some ugly piece of shit. It’s worth noting that an eight-story building will tower above most of the houses on the block, and we second the call for something that’s not an ugly POS.
