PROSPECT HEIGHTS — A St. Marks Avenue parking garage is set to be demolished to make way for a new five-story residential building, according to plans filed last week with the city.

The proposed 50,000-square-foot building at 280 St. Marks Ave., between Vanderbilt and Underhill avenues, will have 32 residential units, 64 enclosed parking spaces and a bicyle storage room, according to building plans filed by a representative of two Manhattan-based development groups partnering on the project, Fifth Square Partners and Wildedge Group

Architecture firm DXA Studio, also of Manhattan, will design the building, the plans said.

The new apartment building will replace a one-story, 1920’s-era building that most recently operated as a parking garage. The developers bought the building for an undisclosed amount in November, according to a project description on Wildedge’s website. The group applied to demolish the garage in early December, according to records.

News of the plans for 280 St. Marks Ave. was first reported by Brownstoner.

The proposed property is located across the street from P.S. 9, the Teunis Bergen elementary school, and on the same block as parts of the Prospect Heights Historic District, though not included in it.
