FORT GREENE — Developers are looking to build a 32-story building on Myrtle Avenue — the fourth and final property in a plan to develop a four-block stretch of the thoroughfare across from the Ingersoll Houses.

Dubbed 86 Fleet Place, the latest building will join The Andrea at 218 Myrtle Ave., The Giovanni at 81 Fleet Pl. and 180 Myrtle Avenue, the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership first reported.

The latter two are currently under construction.

86 Fleet Place will be a mixed-use building with 10,600-square-feet of commercial space on the ground floor and 191 residential units above, according to documents. Applications for permits were recently filed.

Red Apple Group, which is owned by Gristedes Foods CEO John Catsimatidis, will develop the property. A representative for the company said that construction on the building, designed by Goldstein, Hill and West Architects, will take up to four years.

86 Fleet Place will be the company's tallest building. At 346-feet, it will rival its next-door-neighbor, the 399-foot Toren, which was developed by BFC Partners.

The other buildings — the nine-story Andrea, the 15-story Giovanni and the 15-story 180 Myrtle — are all significantly shorter.

DattnerArchitects' Myrtle Avenue Development Master Plan encompasses a total of 765 apartments and 150,000-square-feet of retail space and was designed to be carried out in four phases, according to the firm.
