BROOKLYN — Clinton Hill is on the rise.

An influx of residential buildings are flooding into the small neighborhood that borders Fort Greene, replacing a local funeral parlor, gas stations, the post office and even a White Castle.

Two new developments were recently completed and 11 more are underway in Clinton Hill, adding more than 1,000 apartment in the neighborhood, according to developers.

Some sites, such as 93 Waverly Ave. and 96 Steuben St., which were completed earlier this year, offer luxury amenities such as a doorman, individual rooftop vegetable and herb gardens, courtyards and views of the Manhattan skyline.

Other developments, like the 240-unit development in the former Pratt Post Office location, promise to bring affordable housing and new ground-floor businesses to the neighborhood.

"There is a definite uptick in new developments in Clinton Hill," said David Maundrell, founder and president of aptsandlofts.com, who said the area's rising popularity is boosted by its proximity to Barclays Center, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Fort Greene and Downtown Brooklyn.

"It's a great area — It is more 'neighborhood-y' that Downtown Brooklyn and more affordable than Fort Greene. And Myrtle Avenue has come a long way in the last decade," he added.

In the last quarter, more than a third of all condo sales in new developments in Brooklyn took place in Clinton Hill, according to a MNS Real Estate report.

Here is DNAinfo's roundup of the recently-built and upcoming developments in Clinton Hill.

93 Waverly Ave.
This development was completed early this year and contains 17 units throughout the buildings. The loft-like residences feature double height ceilings and many have private outdoor space in addition to a communal roof with individual vegetable and herb gardens for each resident, according to aptsandlofts.com. All units are currently leased.

96 Steuben St.
This seven-story, 35-unit building was completed earlier this year and features a common courtyard, doorman and roof deck with views of Manhattan. Unit prices range from $2,500 for a one-bedroom to $3,800 for a two-bedroom. Some units are still available to rent.

840 Fulton St.
The Daten Group purchased the Coastal Gas station lot for $7.4 million and plans to demolish the structure to build a 40,000-square-foot building with 38 apartments.  The new building will also have 5,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor.

492 and 524 Myrtle Ave.
The former post office, located at 524 Myrtle Ave., will soon be home to an eight-story, 240-unit residential building with 20 percent of units under market rate. Another building at 492 Myrtle Ave. will also be eight stories and contain 240 units. Construction is underway, but it is unclear when the buildings will be complete.

Leasing started earlier this year for the seven-story, 32-unit building, which leases the ground floor retail space to “A Kid’s Dream” hair salon.
