The first permits filed for the development at 2040 Frederick Douglass Boulevard indicate that the project, developed by Artimus Construction, has been downsized.

According to Department of Buildings records, the development will total 87,776 square feet, 74,621 square feet of which will be turned into 50 residential units. But that number is down from the 56 units that were originally planned for the space. Twenty percent of the apartments are designated affordable housing.

The lot, which was formerly occupied by a BP gas station, will also include a 4,677-square-foot commercial space, as well as an 8,481-square-foot community facility, New York Yimby reported. The 12-story building will stand at 140 feet tall.

The development is located off the northwest corner of Central Park and 110th Street, just adjacent to the B and C trains. [New York Yimby]Sasha von Oldershausen
