Horizon Group plans 100-unit building with retail in Bensonhurst
David Marom’s Horizon Group, operating as 7120 New Utrecht LLC, has revealed plans to construct a 85,034-square-foot, 100-unit mixed-use building at 7120 New Utrecht Avenue in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.
The plans were revealed in a rezoning application in which the developer seeks a Zoning Map Amendment to rezone Block 6180 Lots 29, 31 and 33 from R5 to C4-4L and to eliminate the existing C2-2 district currently mapped 100 feet deep from New Utrecht Avenue along the eastern most portion of Block 6180. Additionally, the developer seeks a zoning text amendment to amend Appendix F (Inclusionary Housing Designated Areas and Mandatory Inclusionary Housing Areas) of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York (“ZR”) to establish the Project Area as a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing Area (“MIH”). The proposed MIH Area would be coterminous with the proposed C4-4L district.
The rezoning would facilitate the construction of a 95-foot tall, nine-story, mixed-use building. The rezoning site consists of block 6180, lots 33, 31, 29, 27, and 44. Lots 29, 27 and 44 are all non-applicant owned. Lot 29 is zoned R5/C2-2 while all other lots are zoned R5/C2-2, R5.
The development site would be located at Block 6180 Lots 31 and 33. The site has a total lot area of 18,518-square-feet.
The building would contain 11,651-square-feet of retail space on the ground floor and 73,383-square-feet of residential uses on floors two through nine. Of the dwelling units, 30 will be permanently affordable. The affordable units would consist of a mix of all unit sizes.
