By Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership

Plans were filed with the NYC Department of Buildings last week to erect a new six-story building on Myrtle Avenue in Fort Greene. The current three-story building at 341 Myrtle Avenue, between Carlton and Adelphi, is one of the neighborhood’s last buildings with boarded-up upper floors.

The new building application shows plans eight apartments on the building’s upper floors, and a 2,200 square foot retail space on the ground floor. The six-story building will reach a height of 60 feet.

The property has been home to the local 99 cent store, Worldwide Discount, for decades. The business owner intends to move the discount store to another location nearby.

We’ve requested renderings from the development firm.
