When a building can be described as "the lovechild of the Flatiron Building and a spaceship," you know the dream is too big to die. And indeed, finally, architect Ismael Leyva's 21-story luxury condo plan at 85 Flatbush Avenue between Tillary and Duffield Streets has been approved. Yep, this DOB filing forwarded to us by a tipster has the proof you need that the Flatbush Flatiron is on its way. Here's what to expect, per Leyva's website:
The twenty-one story condominium building in which almost every apartment has a balcony takes full advantage of the excellent views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines and of the Bridges. This glass-enclosed building consists of 108 apartments that range from studios to three-bedrooms as well as duplex units that will have fireplaces. On the ground level, there are provisions for retail establishments and community space. The residential amenities include a swimming pool, fitness center and a street-level parking facility.And all the astronaut ice cream you can eat! Zing!
