Jonathan Rose Cos. is planning to develop a 19-story residential property at 146 Pierrepont Street in Brooklyn Heights, according to a permit application filed Tuesday with the city’s Department of Buildings.

Plans call for the new building, located between Clinton and Court streets, to house 68 residential units across more than 126,000 square feet. The development will also feature more than 6,000 square feet of commercial space.

The permit application did not specify the breakdown of residential units per floor or planned amenities at the building, however.

Rose purchased the property for $5.7 million in January. The Midtown-based developer also acquired one adjacent property at 181-183 Montague Street for $36.5 million earlier this year and signed a 40-year lease for another, at 189 Montague Street, with owner Treeline Companies in February. Rose obtained the rights to buy 181-183 Montague Street from Long Island-based Treeline last year, as The Real Deal reported.

Rose filed a demolition permit application in February for the existing five-story building at 146 Pierrepont Street and the nine-story building at 189 Montague Street. The developer could not be reached for comment.

Marvel Architects, the project’s architect of record, could not be reached for comment.
