One of the last of very few remaining vacant lots in Brooklyn Heights will soon be filled with a new residential building, if all goes as planned.
The new owners of the vacant lot at 73 Pineapple St., near Henry Street, who also purchased the two adjoining buildings at 71 and 75 Pineapple, have filed a preliminary permit application with the Department of Buildings (DOB) to construct a new 10-unit, 6,984-square-foot, five-story, 50-foot-tall residential building (50 feet is the maximum allowed under the special height restriction in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District).
It is not known if the new owners plan to connect the new building with the existing two.
The space at 75 Pineapple was previously a bar. Anyone remember it?
