John Catsimatidis’ Red Apple Group received partial approval from the city last week for a 170,312-square-foot rental complex at 180 Myrtle Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn.

The 191-unit property will feature a 500-square-foot community space and roughly 10,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Twenty percent of the residential component will be affordable housing.

Dattner Architects has been tapped to design the building, as previously reported. Catsimatidis, a former Republican mayoral candidate, announced plans in November for the 15-story project, which would also have a 129-spot parking area, Gym And Roof Terrace. Construction is expected to begin soon, in time for a 2015 opening. [NY Yimby]Mark Maurer
