UPDATED, 2:21 p.m., Sept.  17: Anshel Friedman and Aaron Karpen filed plans Thursday for a 12-story, 100,000-square-foot residential building with ground-floor retail at 541 Fourth Avenue in Park Slope.

The building is slated to contain 125 residential units, according to plans filed with the city Thursday. They’ll occupy the third through 12th floors of the building, which will house 10 to 14 apartments apiece.

The two commercial spaces on the ground level of the new building will total 10,800 square feet. The building will have a 26-car garage and storage space for 59 bicycles. The developers are planning to have a pet spa on the cellar level.

Recreation rooms for residents are also planned for the cellar, first and second floors.

The units will be rentals, and the developers hope to start construction in December, said Karl Fischer, the architect of record.

Brooklyn-based developers Aaron Karpen and Anshel Friedman assembled the nearly-block-long, eight-parcel site last year, paying $16.5 million. They also own 1915 63rd Street in Mapelton and 918 Broadway in Bedford Stuyvesant.

A call placed to the developers was not immediately returned.
