Fort Greene Parking Lot Closes, Could Construction Be Next?


After years of preparation, could GFI Development and Aufgang Architects be close to starting construction at a parking lot at 810 Fulton Street in Fort Greene? A Brownstoner reader noticed the lot, between Vanderbilt and Clermont, was closed as of Friday, December 4, and sent Brownstoner these photos.

A partial permit for the seven-story, 336-unit residential building was issued by the City Thursday. The development will have 85 affordable rentals, which is 23 percent of the 363 units, Brownstoner reported last year.

Aufgang Architects, based in Suffern, N.Y., is also working on the adaptive reuse of the landmarked former Brillo pad factory at 200 Water Street in Dumbo.

Perhaps the large mixed-use project from GFI, in the works since 2007, may actually be breaking ground soon.
