Hello Living developer Eli Karp has filed permits to build a 23-story building at 1580 Nostrand Avenue in East Flatbush, The Real Deal and New York YIMBY reported Friday. This development will be Hello Living’s fourth in the neighborhood, joining projects at 651 New York Avenue, 271 Lenox Road and 2415 Albemarle Road. The mixed-use tower between Albemarle Road and Tilden Avenue will house 153 units across 128,856 square feet of residential space, along with 44,690 square feet of community space on the first two floors. An ambulatory and diagnostic health care facility and medical office will occupy the first and second floors. YIMBY notes that this is Hello Living’s largest planned development yet, at 241 feet high and 173,546 square feet total. The developer also filed a new building application at an adjacent lot, 2902 Albemarle Road, to construct a two-story medical facility with parking in conjunction with the Nostrand Avenue building. The architect of record is Vincent Martineau Architect. The project will sit on a block-through lot between Nostrand, Albemarle Road and East 29th Street, which Verizon currently owns. A one-story warehouse and parking lot occupy the property now.

In total, Hello Living has finished eight projects and has another seven in planning or construction across Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens and Flatbush. GMAP

  • East Flatbush was bound to be the next frontier of change. Having lived there for 1 year, I have seem rapid changes occur in the last 6 months in terms of neighborhood gentrification. Those getting process out of Prospect Lefferts Gardens and Crown Heights have begun to make their way into East Flatbush. It seems condo development is inevitable in Brooklyn these days. Let’s see how the long term residents of East Flatbush welcome this.

  • The Nostrand corridor is heating up big time and the section of Flatbush closes to Prospect is a no brainer for investors as there is a lot of good housing stock and big lots to be turned into something new like the project mentioned above. I’m down this way for work quite a bit and its very noticeable how much the neighborhood has changed just in the past year.

  • Gosh, I just hope they manage to make them ugly.
