Controversial developer filed permit application to demolish two Park Slope auto repair shops

Developer Haysha Deitsch, best known for his many attempts to evict disabled senior citizens, is moving forward with plans for an 11-story, 16-unit luxury residential building in Park Slope, filing demolition permits this week.

If approved, two auto body repair shops at 243 and 245 Fourth Avenue will be torn down and replaced with a 118-foot condominium building near President Street and will feature a pet spa, private roof deck and a children’s playroom. Karl Fischer, the architect behind Naftali Group’s luxury rental building at 267 Sixth Street, will design the building.

The high-end building will join the residential and retail boom along Fourth Avenue — dubbed the “Canyon of Mediocrity” — in Park Slope.

Deitsch is still mired in litigation over 1 Prospect Park West, a 130-room senior assisted living facility that he bought for $40 million in 2006, and has been trying to sell for $76.5 million since last year, DNAinfo reported. The seven tenants that remain at the facility took Deitsch to court. Last summer a Brooklyn judge ruled the landlord couldn’t evict them amid the court battle.

The delayed shutdown of the facility stalled the deal between Deitsch and Sugar Hill Capital Partners. The real estate investment firm also sued Deitsch over the property. [DNAinfo]Dusica Sue Malesevic
