19-Story Build Coming Soon to Former Hallmark Site?


Someone scrawled “No More Condos” on the construction fence up at 172-174 Montague Street, but that person’s wish will not be coming true. In fact, the new owners submitted plans for a 19-story, 66-unit build to the Department of Buildings this past summer. As Brooklyn Heights Blog noted awhile ago, the DoB ultimately nixed those plans. Since then, the developers have not filed any new building applications, although it looks like the design will come from Daniel Goldner Architects. (It’s worth mentioning that this site does not fall within the Brooklyn Heights Landmark District and is not subject to the 50 foot height limit.) The DoB did issue demo permits last month and by the looks of the site, demolition will happen soon. Something big is definitely in the works here. The two-story former Hallmark store sold for the hefty sum of $12 million this past summer. GMAP
