Last month news hit that the Caledonian Hospital complex on Parkside Avenue will be converted into a condo/rental hybrid, and new permits filed with the city shed a bit more light on the plans. Evidently developer Joseph Chetrit intends to add two stories to the five-story buildings, and the first permit request also reveals that 123 units are slated for one phase of the conversion. (According to The Wall Street Journal article that brought word of the development, 270 units are planned in total.) The ubiquitous Karl Fischer is the architect of record on the project.
