Brooklyn investor Joseph Brunner is planning to construct a 119-unit, 108,000-square-foot apartment building at 1134 Fulton Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, according to a permit application filed with the city’s Department of Buildings Tuesday.

The planned eight-story rental building will feature 89,352 square feet of residential space, as well as 18,489 square feet of commercial space including ground-floor retail. The development will also include a gym and a 75-car parking garage.

Karl Fischer is serving as the architect of record, according to the filing.

The third and fourth floors of the building will each house 21 apartments, while the fifth through seventh floors will hold 23 units each. Six apartments will be located on the eighth floor.

No demolition permits have been filed for the existing two-story retail building on the site.

Brunner could not be reached for comment. The investor acquired the property through Porter Ave Holdings LLC for $19 million last year, according to city property records.

Among other projects, Brunner is involved in the proposed condo conversion of a landmarked Upper West Side church at 361 Central Park West, which he acquired for $42 million last year.
