Quinlan Development is finally moving on its plans to tear down three aging buildings and build a 19-story high-rise on Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights. Architect Navid Naqami of Perkins Eastman filed a new building application yesterday to construct a 185-foot-tall building at 153 Remsen Street. The 79,700-square-foot tower will include 60 apartments and 4,576 square feet of commercial space, where there will be a restaurant or bar and retail. The development will also have a gym, play room, bike parking for 30 bikes, a roof deck, and two apartments with private terraces.
Demolition applications were filed to tear down the decrepit storefront at 153 Remsen in February, but the DOB hasn’t approved it yet. Two neighboring buildings at 155 and 157 Remsen will also bite the dust, leaving behind a 6,900-square-foot lot. The Upper East Side-based developer snapped up all three properties last fall for just over $15,000,000, according to public records.
