Plans have been filed for a nine-story building at 27-55 Jackson Ave.
The development, which will consist of 40 residential units and ground floor retail space, will replace a prominent three-story brick building on the corner of Jackson Avenue and 42nd Road. The corner building, which was occupied in part by Uber until 2016, went up in 1931.
The new building will be 104 feet tall and yield 32,000 square feet, with about 29,000 feet for residential use and 2,600 for commercial. The plans were filed with the Department of Buildings on Monday.
Five apartments will be located on each floor–from floors 2 through nine.
Nissim Seliktar, the owner of the property, purchased the building for $2.95 million on Jan. 31, 2012. He filed for demolition permits in February.
This stretch of Jackson Avenue has undergone a great deal of development in recent years.
Aloft Hotel, an 18-story building with 176 rooms, opened in November 2016 at 27-46 Jackson Ave. Meanwhile, a 13-story development is going up at 27-51 Jackson Ave., the adjacent lot.
