Summary of Site Plans and Status

UPDATE: 8/10/09

On December 10, 2008, rental developers Avalon Bay Communities presented preliminary plans for this site to Community Board 4.  Avalon Bay seeks to purchase this site from Bay Ridge Automotive Group to build a 44-story residential building.  The plans call for about 700 apartments, 20% of which would be affordable under the state’s 80/20 program.  The apartments would sit atop four stories of automotive showrooms and other commercial establishments.  There would be a total of about 50,000 square feet of retail space, possibly including a supermarket.  Bay Ridge’s 23 New York City operations would be consolidated at the site.  The plan is still in its early stages.
