The longtime owner of a Boerum Hill gas station is ready to make some bucks and redevelop his property at 98 3rd Avenue into six stories of apartments with ground-floor retail. New York YIMBY was the first to spot the new building application for the 5,000-square-foot corner lot, which has an alternate address of 300-302 Bergen Street. But the area is zoned for manufacturing and commercial uses, and the application says the owner plans to ask for a zoning variance in order to build apartments there.
If the city greenlights the variance, the building will have 19 units across 18,935 square feet of residential space, as well as 3,310 square feet of commercial space. Newman Design Group is the architect of record. And the owner is Bill Wolf, who’s held onto the property since 1968, as YIMBY noted.
