Greystone may have given up on their plans to convert Park Slope's Brooklyn Lyceum into condos amidst neighborhood uproar, but the developer is still plowing ahead with apartments on an adjacent site. YIMBY revealed the building smack-dab in the middle of the Canyon of Mediocrity at 225 Fourth Avenue, which will rise 12 stories and contain 68 rentals with an average size of 879 square feet. Permits for the project were filed way back in 2008, but the development was put on hold in the financially unstable years to follow. The project, on the corner of Union Street and in front of the Union Street R subway stop, is designed by Daniel Goldner Architects and is expected to be complete in late 2016 or early 2017.
