Demo has started on the Bergen Tile building at the corner of Flatbush and Dean Street in Prospect Heights. When we stopped by last night, the upper part of the building was already gone.
Developer PRD Realty filed a demolition application for 215 Flatbush in October, but DOB didn’t issue a permit until March 11. The most recent new building application is from February 2012 and calls for a six-story building with 53 apartments and 9,875 square feet of ground floor commercial space.
The 55,000-square-foot building has to have 26 parking spaces by law, but Martin Domansky of PRD told us two years ago that he was seeking a variance from the Board of Standards and Appeals because he couldn’t construct that number of spaces. We dug up some renderings last fall that match the recently filed plans.
