A new rendering shows a six-story, 10-unit mix-use building set to rise over the former New Sapolo Restaurant on Myrtle Avenue in Clinton Hill.

The photo of the 13,088 square foot building located at 501 Myrtle Ave. on the corner of Ryerson Street was first revealed by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership.

The building will include 1,882 square feet of commercial retail space and the residential units above are 690 square feet each for rental apartments. The project will also have storage for five bikes, a “recreation room” on the second floor, and a rooftop terrace, according to YIMBY.

In November 2014, Sapolo owners reached a deal to construct on the site. Raymond Chan Architect designed the project.

According to the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership, the project is one of five new buildings being built in Clinton Hill. Also, construction of the new Myrtle Avenue Plaza is in progress and is slated for completion by late 2016.

We reached out to the property’s developers for comment on when 501 Myrtle Ave. would be complete, but they didn’t respond in time for publication. It remains unclear how long construction will last.

[Correction: 7:20 p.m., the restaurant is called Sapolo not Sopolo. We regret the error.]
