In addition to projects in Fort Greene and Mott Haven, the New York City Housing Authority has released plans for a 13-story, 188-unit all-affordable residential building at approximately 401 Dumont Avenue, located within the Van Dyke Houses complex in Brownsville. The new building, being dubbed Dumont Commons, will rent at below-market rates to individuals and families making 30 to 60 percent of area median income (AMI), according to the New York Times. The project will include an urgent care medical facility, a wellness center, and a daycare-like community facility. Dunn Development is the developer and has ground-lease the site, currently a parking lot, from the city for 60 years. Construction is expected to begin in 2017.
