Lonicera Partners is looking to build a 160-unit apartment complex in Downtown Brooklyn.

The firm, headed by Demetrios Yatrakis, filed permits for a 23-story mixed-use property at 308 Livingston Street, just a few blocks away from the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Plans call for a 115,790-square-foot building with 109,331 square feet of residential space and 6,459 square of commercial space.

Planned amenities for the building include bicycle storage, a fitness center, a tenant amenity room and a rooftop deck. If approved as proposed, the structure would be 235 feet tall. The project would be built less than a block away from TF Cornestone’s newly-completed 714-unit residential tower at 33 Bond Street.

The planned structure will replace a three-story terra cotta structure built in 1910. The retail spaces in the property is currently occupied by wig shop Hair Heaven and hair salon Le Touch Unisex.

It’s unclear when Lonicera acquired the property. The last time the property changed hands was in 2002, when it was transferred to Amrik S. Hira.

Lonicera’s portfolio is composed of properties in Downtown Brooklyn, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights and Boerum Hill. Its holdings include 178 Court Street, 173 Amity Street, 181-183 Pacific Street and 157 Remsen Street, according to its website. Last August, the firm, along with partner Orange Management filed permits for a 55-unit residential project at 68-70 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn Heights. The firm did not return requests for comment.
