Construction recently began for a new mixed-use building at 440 Atlantic Avenue between Nevins and Bond Streets in Boerum Hill. The six-story building will have ground floor retail and eight condos above, according to developer and architect Alex Barrett of Barrett Design and Development. A peek through the construction fence reveals that the row houses that once stood on the lot have been demolished and excavation and foundations are under way.
New building applications show the project is zoned for 11,539 square feet of residential space and 3,588 square feet of commercial space. Floors two through four will have two two-bedroom units per floor, half of which will have private balconies, Barrett told us. And floors five and six will have floor-through penthouses with three bedrooms each, private roof terraces, and four exposures. Amenities will include a common roof terrace, bike storage, and separate storage units available for purchase with the condos. Barrett expects to finish construction by fall 2014.
