In what will surely go down as the single greatest day in the life of the Associated Supermarket's owner, plans have been submitted to build a 23 (count 'em) story building on Flatbush near Hawthorne, that sort of orangey stucco medical plaza building that seems to be an edificial lost soul. Here's the story: The Real Deal. The architect's name is Marvel.
Remember, permits haven't yet been granted. There will undoubtedly be some sort of ULURP timeline. But it's safe to say that this would be a monumental change to the neighborhood. And you'd see this building from half of Prospect Park. Heck you'd probably see it from space.
What think? A good idea? It's certainly a tall idea...
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
