A Clinton Hill funeral home will be laid to rest so that a six-story Karl Fischer-designed Building Can Take Its Place.

Last week, demolition permits were filed for the three-story Fairhaven Funeral Chapel, located at 1045-1047 Fulton Street, near Downing Street. The planned apartment complex will hold 28 units — over 21,048 square feet of residential space — and feature private terraces and bicycle storage.

Fischer’s initial design plan was for an eight-story, 32-unit building on the site, the proposal for which was disapproved over the summer, Brownstoner reported. It’s not clear if the building will be rentals or condominiums.

In 2011, Fischer designed a condo conversion at 163 Washington Avenue, also in Clinton Hill, which later went rental, previous reports show. [Brownstoner]Mark Maurer
