Permits have been filed for a four-story affordable housing development at 811 Lexington Avenue, in Stuyvesant Heights, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks from the Kosciuszko Street station serviced by the J train, and four blocks from the Gates Avenue station serviced by the J and Z trains. The Northeastern Conference of Seventh-day Adventists will be responsible for the project.

The 55-foot tall structure will yield 41,326 square feet, with 34,027 square feet dedicated to residential use. The masonry structure will have a rear yard 26 feet long on the interior lot. 61 apartments will be created, averaging 558 square feet apiece for senior residents.

The development qualifies for the Affordable Independent Residences for Seniors (“AIRS”) bump which increases the overall floor area ratio, higher building heights, and open space ratios in exchange for unit occupancy by at least one person who is 62 years or older and a minimum of 4% of the building dedicated to shared facilities for residents, including dining rooms and community rooms.

Jack Esterson of Think Architecture will handle the design. They are also the architects behind HANAC Senior Residence in Corona, Queens.

No demolition permits have been filed nor has an estimated completion date been announced.
