There’s finally some action at the long-vacant Bergen Tile Building at Flatbush and Dean Street in Prospect Heights, where the developer PRD Realty filed a demolition application last week. Development plans have been in the works for a while at 215 Flatbush, a prime spot located right across the street from the Barclays Center. Ripco Real Estate has been marketing the site for three months and recently posted this flyer with renderings and details on the planned mixed-use development. The most recent new building application — filed and disapproved in February 2012 — is for a six-story building with 53 rental apartments and 9,875 square feet of ground floor retail space. The 55,000-square-foot building would be required to have 26 parking spaces by law. However, Martin Domansky of PRD told us last year that he was taking his case to the Board of Standards and Appeals because PRD couldn’t possibly construct that number of spaces.
