The conversion of the old Caledonian Hospital on the south side of Prospect Park has been in limbo for several years now, but it seems that the Hot Karl-designed, Chetrit Group-developed project is picking up steam. The Q at Parkside spotted update construction fencing, with one of those pretty rendering signs calling the building "123 on the Park." There's a teaser website for the building, but, aside from listing the types of units the building will have, there is no information about the project. Instead, it's merely a video about Prospect Park, which is clearly what the marketing team at aptsandlofts considers to be the biggest selling point.
It was reported in 2011 that the building would be a mix of 270 condos and rentals, but Department of Building permits, which were approved last summer, indicate 133 units. However, aptsandlofts is credited at the end of the video, and a PR person for the brokerage told us it is now a 120 unit rental building with studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom. The DOB filings also say there will be 128 attending parking spaces in the cellar level, and 67 bike parking spaces. It looks like there will also be outdoor recreational space on the first floor. The most recent permits were filed in November 2013, so clearly things are moving forward. Has anyone been past the site recently? Construction photos are more than welcome on the tipline.
