Midwood Investment and Development Corp. is touting two huge retail spaces available for lease at 800 Union Street that could lure big-box retailers to the heart of Park Slope, but the Department of Buildings disapproved conversion plans for the building, a parking garage, in November 2013 and little progress appears to have been made on the project since. The ground floor space would have 7,248 square feet and the lower level would have 3,903 square feet, according to the developer’s online brochure.
Renderings for the altered structure, which we published last year, show an attractive loft-style cast iron and brick building with ground floor retail space and apartments and penthouses with big windows and balconies above. Click through to see more drawings of the proposed alteration.
The developer filed plans to convert the parking garage to a mixed-use building in October 2013 but the city disapproved the plans the following month. In July of this year, the developer filed to alter the front and back facades, but the job was “administratively closed due to inactivity” in September, according to the DOB file.
Our only question is: Where would people park?
