5381 Kings Highway
EAS Filed for Proposed East Flatbush Storage Facility
Another Environmental Assessment Statement (EAS) has been filed with the NYC Department of City Planning for a 5-story self-storage facility, proposed at 5381 Kings Highway in Brooklyn's East Flatbush neighborhood.
The proposal is currently marked as "noticed" by the planning department, which means that it hasn't yet entered the public review process. When it does, it could ultimately take up to 3-5 months for the application to be evaluated, as it must pass through the Community Board, Borough President, Borough Board, City Planning Commission, City Council, and NYC Mayor's Office before receiving approval.
Tucked behind neighboring buildings, out of the way, and out of sight, the proposal shouldn't see too much backlash from the planning department going forwards. In fact, this may showcase one of the better examples of how one can incorporate a bulky storage center into a local neighborhood without upsetting the community.
