CLINTON HILL — The new building set to rise at 504 Myrtle Ave. may stand two stories taller than expected.
Original plans for the mixed-use building filed in 2014 called for a six-story building at the site but recently released renderings of the development reveal that architects plan for it to rise eight floors.
A source at H.T.O. Architects, which is designing the building, confirmed that the firm plans for the building to reach seven stories with an additional rooftop level when completed, pending Department of Buildings approval.
Developers currently have permission to build floors one through six, and they will need to amend the plans to build any additional floors, according to the DOB.
The original design for the development, located where the Pratt Post Office once stood, called for 20,000 square feet of new commercial space on the ground floor, 92 rental apartments on the upper floors, and 46 parking spaces in the basement, records show.
The number of residential units will likely increase with the additional floors, according to the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership.
Renderings for the building also show a "cantilever over the pedestrian walkway that leads from Myrtle Avenue to [the] Willoughby Walk Co-ops to the south," the Partnership noted.
The building's developer, Silverstone Property Group, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
