UPDATED 4:00 p.m., February 19: Greenland Forest City Partners — a joint venture between Greenland USA and Forest City Ratner Companies — filed plans to build a 23-story building at 30 Sixth Avenue in Prospect Heights, according to property  records filed with the city today.

The 341,595-square-foot building will include 321,337 square feet of residential space span across 305 units. The building will include a more than 20,000-square-foot commercial component. The plans also call for a health care facility on the second floor, as well as a 73-car parking garage to go with the property. SHoP Architects is the architect of record.

The plans call for a 218-foot-tall property between Atlantic and Flatbush avenues, where the developer — together with Greenland Holdings — is looking to build a total of three rental buildings. One of the buildings at the site is the world’s tallest modular tower, known as B2, over which Forest City and builder Skanska USA traded lawsuits last year. B2 will be at 461 Dean Street.

Some property owners who have not yet vacated their properties at the former Atlantic Yards site will be moving out within two months, allowing the developers to move forward.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly identified the address. It is 30 Sixth Avenue.
