Construction is finally coming along at 180 Myrtle Avenue, where grocery mogul John Catsimatidis’ Red Apple Group is planning a 15-story mixed-use residential tower. The first level has risen, with 14 more to go, we saw when we stopped by Sunday.
Summer 2016 is the anticipated completion date, according to the sign on the construction fence. The building will be a rental with 213 apartments and will feature plenty of amenities, including a landscaped roof terrace.

This project is part of the third phase of the Myrtle Avenue Development Master Plan — originally scheduled for completion in 2008! Sibling buildings are The Giovanni at 81 Fleet and The Andrea at 218 Myrtle.
A fourth tower is planned at 86 Fleet Place. At 32 stories, it will be the tallest of the group.
