The latest residential building planned for Crown Heights will have 201 units.

Plans were filed Tuesday for the seven-story project at 959 Sterling Place, which the Landmarks Preservation Commission will ultimately need to approve, according to New York YIMBY. The existing building on site is the Hebron Seventh-Day Adventist Bilingual School, and the address is within the Crown Heights North Historic District.

An LLC linked to Triton Construction and Jeffrey Gershon’s Hope Street Capital filed plans for the project, which will stand 84 feet tall and span about 211,000 square feet, split between 140,000 square feet of residential space and nearly 72,000 square feet of educational space. Amenities will include a rooftop lounge, a fitness center and a pool.

JIH Builders is also planning a new residential building in the neighborhood at 1515 Park Place that will stand eight stories tall with 52 units. [NY YIMBY] – Eddie Small
