BENSONHURST - As construction begins on the new Calko Medical Center in Bensonhurst, some residents are worried what the completed project will mean for parking.

Anna Cali, who lives nearby, says the New York City Department of Buildings specifies that property owners must provide a certain number of parking spaces for their building. In the case of Calko, the number was set at 248 spaces.

She says that despite community opposition, the owners are looking to reduce the number of available spaces to around 130 spaces.

While the construction is not expected to be completed until 2013, residents say they are going to fight the building owners at an upcoming building standards and appeals hearing.
