Brooklyn landlord Moshe Braver wants to bring 180 apartments to 338 Evergreen Avenue in Bushwick, according to his application for a building permit filed Wednesday.

Braver’s Bushwick Realty Holdings LLC acquired the site last year. 

It paid $15 million for the site, also known as 871 Bushwick Avenue, and the adjacent property at 889 Bushwick Avenue.

In July, Braver filed permits for an emergency demolition of 871 Bushwick, which at the time measured 120,000 square feet.

Now, permits reveal plans for a five-story building on the site that will have nearly 305,000 square feet, split between residential space and a community facility. Syndicate Architecture is the architect of record.

According to the filing, the lower level of the building and the first floor will have 28 apartments each, and there will be 31 units each on the top three floors. The rooftop will include a 4,300-square-foot outdoor recreation area.

Meanwhile, in May, Bushwick Realty obtained a permit to renovate and enlarge 889 Bushwick, a long-neglected four-story building. The building will now rise six stories and house 46 apartments, according to the permit.

Mortgage documents for 338 Evergreen were signed by Brooklyn investor Joseph Brunner under the entity Bushwick Realty.
