Cornell Realty Management has withdrawn applications for two 16-story mixed-use buildings, which would have totaled 565 residential units, at 40 Crown Street and 931 Carroll Street, in western Crown Heights. Both buildings required a rezoning and approval through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), although the plans were shelved just before the first public review at Brooklyn Community Board 9, DNAinfo reported.
The developer intends to “resubmit this application” in the future once it has reached out further to the community, although no additional details were provided. Under a project that requires rezoning, at least 25 percent of the units must be designated as affordable. Current zoning allows an as-of-right project to stand up to seven stories. Both sites are occupied by low-rise industrial buildings.
