Rybak Development & Construction plans to demolish the El Greco Diner in Sheepshead Bay to make way for a 90,000-square-foot residential condominium property.
The new building at 1821 Emmons Avenue would contain a ground-floor retail component, Crain’s reported. The El Greco Diner and its parking lot occupy a full block at 1821 Emmons Avenue, near East 19th Street.
Rybak, a Brooklyn-based developer, recently paid $13 million to buy the diner from the Venetoklis family, who operated it for more than four decades, according to the publication.
The building hit the market for $15.9 million last year, as The Real Deal reported.
Erik Yankelovich of GFI Realty was hired to secure construction financing for the project. [Crain’s] — Mark Maurer
