Three low-rise buildings along Dean Street in Crown Heights, once part of a brewery, will soon be razed to make way for an eight-story, 119-unit building.

The site, given as 937 Bergen Street in Department of Buildings records but dubbed 1036 Dean Street by the current owner, will give way to apartments with ground-floor retail measuring 18,749 square feet. The 81,880-square-foot residential portion will include 119 units. Whether the apartments will be rentals or condominiums was not immediately clear.

Owner Fabian Friedland is in the process of selling the site, part of a larger 21,929-square-foot parcel that once housed the Nassau Brewery. Listed in October for $18 million, the site hit the market one week after City Council approved a rezoning of Crown Heights West that made residential development possible.
