A supportive housing facility for teenagers may soon be replaced by an 11-story apartment building.

Developer Joseph Banda filed permits to build a 63-unit property at 262 9th Street in Park Slope, near the corner of 4th Avenue and just a few blocks from Washington Park.

The proposed structure’s footprint would be divided between 49,342 square feet of residential, 3,259 square feet of commercial space and 709 square feet for a community facility. Amenities would include a library, a recreational space and bicycle storage. If approved as proposed, the building would be 125 feet tall.

The project will replace the three-story location of the Barbara Blum Residence. The facility, which was operated by nonprofit Good Shepherd Services, housed teenagers that were placed by family court.

Banda acquired the 9th Street property and the adjacent building at 441 4th Avenue for $15.5 million last month. The 4th Avenue building housed Good Shepherd’s family counseling facility. Banda filed demolition permits for both properties last June. His real estate holdings also include 292 Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, which he bought for $6 million in 2014.

Banda did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
