Developer to Demolish Clinton Hill Key Food for Eight-Story Apartment Building


Developer Slate Property Group plans to demolish the Key Food at 325 Lafayette Avenue in Clinton Hill to build an eight-story, 115-unit rental building, as Crain’s was the first to report. The 120,000-square-foot building will include 15,000 square feet of retail, which will likely be a supermarket, and 3,500 square feet of amenity space. Twenty percent of the apartments will be affordable.

Aufgang Architects is designing the building, which won’t be the first supermarket-replacing development the firm has designed in Clinton Hill. It also designed the seven-story, 232-unit rental building rising at 490 Myrtle Avenue, where the Associated Supermarket used to be.

Instead of buying the property outright, Slate decided to partner with its longtime owners, Dan’s Supreme Supermarkets.
