Site of Planned Prospect Park Tower Finds New Owner

Last fall, we heard that the plans for the glassy 20-story Park Tower had fizzled, and project site was back on the market. As does sometimes happen in these situations, the site has now sold, blog PLOG reports. The buyer is 31 Lincoln Road Development LLC, and PLOG hears that the same LLC has picked up a few other Lincoln Road and neighborhood properties, too. When it was first announced, the tower was slated to include 86 condos, retail space, and one of the 24-hour color-changing LED light clocks that have become a trademark of project designer Gilman Architects. When the site returned to market, the broker thought it might be brought back to life as a rental in 2013 or 2014. But perhaps with a new look? If the local hatred didn't dissuade the new owners from resurrecting the design, maybe the Murano backlash will do it.

I was a fan of this one. We'll see what happens.

This is needed because Richard Meier's building sticks out like a sore thumb.

Would this be built already if the developers hadn't had to waste all that time accomidating the crazy transparant glass = bird death crowd?

Development Watch: Action at PLG Tower Site

PLOG takes note that there's some excavation happening at the stalled Prospect-Lefferts Gardens site where a developer once planned a 23-story glass tower and which, more recently, was rumored to have been sold. This raises more questions than it answers, though: No new DOB permits have shown up online for the parcels, 31 Lincoln Road and 510 Flatbush Avenue, and if they've been sold the deed has yet to make its way to public records.

Applications for a 24-story tower were withdrawn in 2012:

The site was split into two tax lots.

A 9-story mixed-use building is now underway at 510 Flatbush Avenue:

And an 8-story mixed-use building is underway at 33 Lincoln Road:
