St. Marks Park
I just found out that St. Marks Park, where I used to park my car, is closing. That explains why it's been so hard to park recently They said they lost their lease, but don't know what's going to go in their place. Anyone have any ideas? Also, anyone know of a cheap lot in the neighborhood?
Great there goes my view towards Washington but seriously I wonder if that lot will be converted to residential? I know they had a lengthy lease from the current owners of the lot but apparently they have other ideas considering all the development along this block. The lot is fairly large and has R6B zoning which I believe is low to midrise residential. It's right near armchair's building as well. The funny thing is that the 307 St Marks Ave address doesn't even exist according the the DOB, the lot address is 313-315. http://gis.nyc.gov/doitt/nycitymap/?searchType=AddressSearch&addressNumber=307&street=saint+marks+avenue&borough=Brooklyn&Submit=Go
St. Johns between Classon and Franklin pretty reasonable.
Thanks, TheBurgerking - I'll check them out. I just had a chat with Rohan in Nok Auto and he's trying to lease the lot and re-open. I think the RE market is so bad nobody in their right mind would undertake a large building.

You were correct for several years, but are no longer correct.
After some delays, 76 Unit market rate rental is going to be built.For better or worse, the change on Nostrand is going to make the change on Franklin look minor.
When I spoke to one of the attendants a few weeks ago, he said it would be a while (months, years) before they started construction. Don't know if this is true.
So, S3 Architecture will be building out TWO large residential projects on both sides of the (sinkhole known as) St. Marks between Washington and Underhill, a total 120 new high-end residential units on one very short block.
Given that S3 has such a large roster of "real" projects either built or in the works, most of the DOB docs were filed in the past 30 days (and there's a $16,000 filing fee) - my gut says this one will happen reasonably soon.
DOB's site says "Development Challenge Process is pending Zoning Approval" - it's an R2 use on an R6B lot. Anyone have insight on whether that's a fight in the works, or a standard new-build process?
The parking lot in question began removing hydraulic car lifts this week. For a lot that's routinely packed to the gills, this suggests the condo build is happening sooner rather than later.

Carry onFor better or worse, the change on Nostrand is going to make the change on Franklin look minor.
