Another megamansion is coming to Brooklyn Heights.

Landlord Gili Haberberg filed plans Monday to convert a five-story, 10-unit building at 67 Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights into a 4,746-square-foot, single-family home, according to Department of Buildings records. The building would continue to be 55 feet and five stories tall.

Haberberg, who runs the property management company Arkar Inc., purchased the property in 2012 for $3.35 million from the Jehovah’s Witnesses Watchtower collection. He did not respond to a request for comment.

Haberberg’s project would join the Brooklyn Heights megamansion at 146 Willow Street, which was converted from a seven-unit building into a seven-bedroom, single-family home. Compass is currently listing that property for $15 million.

Additionally, Benchmark Real Estate Group started marketing a 20-unit building at 50 Orange Street last April as a $22 million single-family home but never filed the permits.

Haberberg recently purchased a newly developed 13-story rental building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side for $62 million.
