The owner of the property located at 1620 Cortelyou Road, Brooklyn NY, which is currently a Key Food Super Market is looking for a rezoning change from R-6A/C-2-4 which allows for a 6 to 8 floor mixed use building with residential and ground floor retail space to R-7D/C-2-4 zoning which would allow for a higher density project.
The Flatbush group that is opposed to the project is called Respect Brooklyn. According to Linda Allende of Respect Brooklyn, “this would be a ridiculous upzoning of an upzoning that was granted in 2009."
The property owner is planning to build a 9 story building with 85 apartments, a 6,473 square foot space for the Super Market plus 3,087 square feet of ground floor space for other retail use and a cellar with 44 parking spaces. Twenty one of the apartments would be permanently affordable units.
Allende of Respect Brooklyn points out that “the developer can already build all the affordable housing they want and get a bonus they don't need and do not deserve permission to evade existing zoning to build an out of context and out of character tower”.
