Developers and New York City officials recently joined to celebrate the first phase of completion at Linden Terrace, a 548-unit affordable housing complex in East New York, Brooklyn. Located at 2858 Linden Boulevard, the building comprises 234 affordable homes. The teams also celebrated the commencement of construction for the second and third buildings, which will eventually comprise 159 and 155 additional affordable apartments.

The Linden Terrace development team includes Radson Development, Real Builders, and Spring Management with support from New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) and Housing Development Corporation (HDC). The development was made possible by the agencies Mix & Match, Extremely Low-Income and Low-Income Affordability, and Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) programs.

Designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning, the first building comprises a mix of layouts ranging from one- to three-bedrooms. The income-restricted apartments are designated for households earning between 30 and 80 percent of the area median income.

Brooklyn borough president Antonio Reynoso was among the group celebrating the debut of the new building and urged the construction of similar developments in New York City.

“The only way to help our city’s housing crisis is to invest in more livable, high-quality, affordable housing like the development at Linden Terrace in East New York we’re acknowledging today,” said Reynoso. “This development will help hundreds of families reach stable, affordable housing, providing them with a legitimate foundation to achieve more.”

All buildings within Linden Terrace were constructed with climate change, forthcoming emission caps, and renewability in mind. Sustainable infrastructure and mechanics include gray water recycling features, an elevated lobby to mitigate potential damage from flooding, green roofs that improve building insulation and water-tightness, solar panels, and a VRF heating and cooling system that will consume less energy compared to traditional HVAC units.

“We’re building for the future,” said HPD commissioner Adolfo Carrión Jr. “Not only are 40 percent of these homes permanently affordable to serve this community, but they are also built to high standards to improve quality of life and combat the growing threat posed by climate change.”

Phases two and three are expected to debut in early 2024. The resident application portal will open summer 2023 on NYC Housing Connect.

    Where is the mention of the Honorable Inez Barron former Councilmember and former Assemblyman Now Councilman Charles Barron. They are the ones who got the affordability to meet the AMI of this project to meet the AMI of our community of ENY. Most projects in NYC creates the ability to continue gentrification. This particular project does allow for folks in the lower income bracket decent & true affordable housing!
