CROWN HEIGHTS — Two empty lots in the neighborhood are set to be replaced by a five-story residential building, according to construction plans filed with the city last week.
The eight-unit building at 529 Park Place between Grand and Classon avenues will be designed by Issac and Stern Architects, according to the permit application filed Aug. 14 with the Department of Buildings.
The architecture firm has designed many buildings in Brooklyn and Manhattan, including a planned six-story residential building at 730 Franklin Ave. south of Park Place, about two blocks from 529 Park Place.
The 8,800-square-foot property will be built on two lots — 529 and 531 Park Place — that have been vacant since the city demolished two buildings there in 2008, property records show.
The new apartment building is being developed by the Brooklyn real estate firm Sterling Town Equities, which bought both lots for $2.36 million in May through the company Park Pl Heights LLC, property and business records show.
News of the project was first reported by New York YIMBY.
