Catsimatidis' Mixed-Use Tower Tops Off in Fort Greene

[Via Stefano Giovannini/Brooklyn Daily]

Last week, the latest Fort Greene project of developer, grocery tycoon, erstwhile mayoral candidate, and mastermind behind the greatest Christmas card ever, John Catsimatidis, has topped out, Brooklyn Daily reports.

The 15-story, mixed-use building is located at 180 Myrtle Avenue and is called The Margo (after Catsimatidis' wife). It joins Cats' neighboring buildings, The Andrea and The Giovanni (named for his children, of course) at 218 Myrtle Avenue and 81 Fleet Place respectively. The building will have around 200 apartments (including 40 affordable units), plus a rooftop terrace and retail space on the ground floor. It will likely be complete by spring 2016.

Construction is also ready to begin on the final and tallest building in the development, 86 Fleet Place—a 35-story residential tower set to rise between Ashland Place and Flatbush Avenue.
