Rental Tower Planned for 180 Myrtle Avenue

John Catsimatidis’ development company Red Apple Group is planning a 15-story rental tower for 180 Myrtle in downtown Brooklyn, according to a plan exam application spotted by Buzz Buzz Home. Dattner Architects will design the building, which will have 213 units and 129 parking spaces. The 156-foot-tall development will have 171,890 square feet of residential space, 10,988 square feet of commercial space and 500 square feet of community space. There will also be a lounge, playroom, roof terrace and exercise room. The supermarket mogul has owned the lot between Fleet and Ashland Place since the early ’80s, along with the two properties on either side of it, 81 Fleet Place and 218 Myrtle Avenue (another large rental building called The Andrea). And Catsimatidis has been planning a large development there since at least 2007, when we reported on plans for a 400-foot-tall building with a million square feet of space.

  • As I understand it, this is the parcel between the now under construction 81 Fleet, and the Andrea, and it’s currently used as a parking lot. I imagine that this new build will closely resemble 81 Fleet. Nothing too exciting, what would really be interesting is if Red Apple finally discloses what they plan to do with the lot immediately east of the Toren. That was initially scheduled to be a high rise tower.
