Greenland Forest City Ratner Partners is preparing to put up another building, a 26-story residential tower, in the Pacific Park megadevelopment, according to a permit application filed with the Department of Buildings Monday.

The tower, located at 615 Dean Street between Vanderbilt Avenue and Carlton Avenue in Prospect Heights, will contain 244 apartments across 312,750 square feet. An additional 4,000 square feet will be set aside for commercial space, including ground-floor retail.

Several apartments will have private terraces, according to the application. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the architect of record.

The developer of Pacific Park, formerly known as Atlantic Yards, is a partnership between Greenland USA and Forest City Ratner Companies. Representatives for the developer didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Greenland Forest City Ratner Partners will launch sales at its luxury condo building in the development, 550 Vanderbilt, this summer. In February, the developer filed plans for a 305-unit rental building at 30 Sixth Avenue. Its rental building at 461 Dean Street, known as B2, is slated to be the world’s tallest modular tower at 32 stories, but construction on the building was delayed amid several lawsuits. In March, the developer announced construction was restarting.
