The city’s Department of Buildings has disapproved the first iteration of plans by Simon Dushinsky’s Rabsky Group to construct a large, full-block apartment building on the Rheingold Brewery site in Bushwick, according to filings.

Rabsky filed plans in January to construct a seven-story, nearly 400,000-square-foot building at 10 Montieth Street that would house 392 apartments. Last month, Eran Chen’s ODA New York revealed its design for the property, complete with a zigzagging landscaped rooftop and running/hiking source, as The Real Deal reported.

Then, late last week, city rejected the permit application.

“We will address the minor objections and move forward as planned,” Chen told TRD.

The 80/20 inclusionary-housing project will be broken down into 123 studios, 228 one-bedrooms and 41 two-bedrooms, half of which will have private outdoor spaces, filings showed. Dushinsky has an undisclosed stake in Reed Development Group’s 10-building redevelopment of the former Rheingold site.
