Update 7/1/21: The 17-story building — designed by dencityworks and developed by Totem — was unanimously approved by Brooklyn Community Board 3 during their Monday full board meeting. The project will also be the first all-electric building using microgrid battery technology to be developed in Bed-Stuy. Other sustainable measures will include sustainable wood cladding and rainwater catchment systems on the green roof.
A busy industrial corridor along Atlantic Avenue between Bed-Stuy and Crown Heights has caught the attention of a number developers as of late. Yet another massive building is being proposed for the throroughfare, this one a 17-story, 477,100-square-foot structure located at 1045 Atlantic Avenue between Classon and Franklin avenues.
The developer, inferred as Totem Brooklyn in city documents, is seeking to rezone a "S" shuttle-adjacent lot in order to make way for 426 apartments (126 affordable), 152 underground parking spaces, street-level retail, a floor of office space, a childcare center, and a sweeping verdant rooftop of about 31,500 square feet. The building itself would boast 370-feet of frontage and rise 175 feet.
Currently on site are a slew of low-rise commercial buildings covering a total lot area of 46,752 square feet.
If the rezoning is approved, it is anticipated that the proposed development will be constructed and fully occupied by 2024.
