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.

realistically, i don't see any large improvement of that area happening anytime soon. i'd love to see it happen, but i think we're talking a minimum of 20-30 years before Myrtle can climb its way up, if ever. people thought fort greene was on the brink of gentrification in 1975, but it turns out they were about 20 years off as well.
