Five-Story apartment building proposed for Brooklyn
A great many apartment complexes have been, or are being, constructed along S.E. Milwaukie Avenue in Inner Southeast. And now, more apartments are planned under a development notice posted August 27 at the former U.S. Bank site, 3230 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue in the Brooklyn neighborhood, just two blocks south of Powell Boulevard.A company called Works Progress Architecture has proposed a five-story apartment building there, providing 129 dwelling units in the second through fifth floors, and a first floor lobby with amenities and on-site parking access on the ground level.
The plan specifies 72 fully automated parking spaces, including two "accessible" and two loading spaces. The proposal was aired on Thursday, September 10, as part of a virtual "ZOOM" meeting of the Board of the Brooklyn Action Corps neighborhood association, and representatives of Works Project Architecture were there to present a preliminary development plan sketch, with project steps listed in order through the zoning and land use processes.
BAC Board Member Marie Phillippi reported that the developers were amenable to the suggestion of adjusting their plans to include commercial spaces along the S.E. Milwaukie Avenue side of the structure. Considering the recent shuttering of nearby businesses Sanborn's Breakfast Restaurant and Pok Pok Wing restaurant, the suggestion was intended to improve the Brooklyn business corridor.
