UPDATED, 3:16 p.m., Oct. 28: Soft Stone Development plans to build a 122-unit, mixed-use building above a Rite Aid pharmacy in Crown Heights, according to a permit application filed with the city’s Department of Buildings Wednesday.

The seven-story, 122,075-square-foot building at 1040 St. John’s Place in Brooklyn, near Kingston Avenue, would rise on the site. In addition to the apartments and the 9,000-square-foot, ground-floor pharmacy, there will be a 29,285-square-foot community facility, the filing shows.

The seven-story building’s third through sixth floors will each have 24 apartments, while the top floor will have 26 units. The rooftop will include an outdoor recreation area.

Affordable Housing Real Estate Corp. bought the building in 2004 for $1.9 million. Soft Stone, a Borough Park-based firm affiliated with controversial investor Chaim Miller, is the developer.

A representative for Soft Stone declined to comment. Architect Julien Flander could not be immediately reached.

No permit applications have been filed to demolish the 9,000-square-foot pharmacy, which will remain intact. The building was constructed in 1920, records show.
