CROWN HEIGHTS — A new residential building is set to replace a vacant lot on the border of Prospect Heights and Crown Heights, according to a building permit application filed last week with the city.
The empty space at 953 Pacific St. between Washington and Grand avenues will soon become a four-story residential building with three units and a cellar, according to the permit filed on July 22 with the Department of Buildings by a representative of the developer, Infinity Properties.
The nearly 4,000-square-foot building will be designed by architect Suresh Manchanda of Flushing, Queens. Manchanda also designed three new mixed-use buildings at Putnam and Bedford avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant in 2013, according to real estate reports.
The 20-foot-wide lot where the new building will stand sold to 281 Jefferson LLC in March for $1.15M, according to property records.
It’s unclear how Infinity Properties is associated with the LLC that bought the building. An inquiry to the company was not immediately returned.
Infinity Properties first applied to build a two-family home on the lot in January, according to permit records and an earlier report by New York YIMBY, but that plan has since been rejected by the buildings department and replaced by the July 22 plan.
Previously, the empty Pacific Street lot was the site of a three-story house that was demolished in 2008, according to building records.
The new building is one of several new projects on the block. Next door, four "ultra energy efficient" units in a brand new condo building at 951 Pacific St. are currently being sold by Corcoran.
Two doors down, construction of a five-story apartment building at 949 Pacific St. is underway, according to building records.
And across the street, construction fencing surrounds a partially complete four-story, three-unit residential building being developed by Great Pacific Street LLC, building records show.
