Big Apartment Building Planned for Crown Heights South on Church Lot


It looks like the Crown Heights development boom is finally making it south of Eastern Parkway with a planned five-story residential building at 267 Rogers Avenue between Carroll and Crown streets. New building applications filed last month show a 112,256-square-foot building with 165 apartments. The architects are Think Architecture and Design PLLC.

The property is part of the St. Ignatius Catholic Church complex next to Medgar Evers High School, and demolition applications have already been filed to knock down the church’s community hall (pictured). As far as we can tell, the actual church building will remain. Public records indicate the church still owns the land, but the site may have changed hands recently since the building permits list an LLC as the owners. GMAP

Update: Curbed thinks the church next door is going to be torn down too, based on the addresses on the permits and a quick walk over to the site today. And in March, the Bishop of Brooklyn officially closed the Church of St Ignatius.
