Two St. Edmund’s rectories, built in 1925, are slated to be demolished, and in their place could rise a 7-story medical and apartment complex — mirroring the look of surrounding Ocean Avenue blocks.
Brooklyn-based developer Yaacov Azrad has filed applications for a seven-story, 105-unit mixed-use building at 2442 and 2450 Ocean Avenue at the corner of Avenue T in Sheepshead Bay, reports YIMBY.
If approved, the new building would be 80,906 square feet and rise 70 feet, with medical offices on the ground floor and 105 residential units.
The developer bought the site for $10.1 million in February, according to property records.
There are two three-story wood-frame houses on the lot, rectory buildings for St. Edmund’s, have been standing since 1925, according to property records. The private Catholic St. Edmund’s high school is down the block.
Demolition permits for the wood-frame houses were approved in May.
Development is an old story along this stretch of Ocean Avenue in Sheepshead Bay. Last week, we reported an eight-story condo tower by controversial architects near Avenue X; In April, a nine-story condo building rising at Quentin Road; and in 2015, a six-story tower slated for an abandoned site that was a haven for graffiti and illegal dumping.
