There’s a seven-story mixed-use development planned for the corner of Kent, Flushing and Wallabout Street near the Navy Yard, at 377 Flushing Avenue. Prolific architect Karl Fischer is designing the 177-unit building, which will have 134,517 square feet of residential space and 27,354 feet of commercial space, according to new building permits issued in August. The building will also have roof terraces, underground parking with 106 spaces and storage space for 22 bikes.
Developer Rabsky Group bought the site last August for $11,575,000, according to PropertyShark, and soon applied to have the property rezoned. The City Council agreed to rezone the site. The developer said it planned to make the apartments affordable housing, sell part of the property to the neighboring yeshiva, and build a five-story extension for the school, according to CityLand. When we stopped by this weekend, we found that the warehouse on the site had been demolished, but permits indicate that construction is “on hold.”
