A developer has been eyeing the spot currently occupied by Central Parking in Park Slope.

Park Slope Community Board 6's land use committee will host a hearing at the Prospect Park YMCA, located at 357 9th Street on the 7th floor, at 6 p.m. tomorrow to gather public commentary prior to creating a recommendation for usage of the space.

The developer, Midwood Investment and Development, is looking to build a 28-unit luxury high-rise in the space, located at 798-804 Union Street, which would mean the end of the parking facility and, potentially, other local businesses.

Residents said that the addition of retail space and new homes would impede on an already-crowded community.

News of Central Parking's possible disappearance has already caused a dramatic spike in the price of parking at area garages. Spaces have been going for as high as $80,000 at locations such as Garage Condominium.

Interested persons seeking more information may call 718-643-3027 or email the board at info@brooklyncb6.org.

This is called ''Staten Island Style Development'' if there's a free space build as much as you can on it regulations be damned ,if you've got the money to pay the right people.
