Myrtle revitalization in the future
A 3-to-4 block long strip of Myrtle Avenue off of Flatbush is turning residential. From Prince St. to Ashland Place, the residential units will be a mix of low-, moderate- and market-rate housing. The plans were announced today in Crain's.
Surprisingly, preliminary plans called for a 400-foot tower with about 500 condos or luxury rentals by Flatbush Ave. Extension and smaller 160-foot towers on the Myrtle Ave strip.
Along with the 28-story residential/hotel project on Ashland and Fulton, reported here, this is sure to change the landscape of the Fort Greene skyline in the near future.
