Over the course of 2018, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development increasingly shifted focus to the development of sustainable, environmentally-conscious housing for low-income New Yorkers. Today, YIMBY has the first look at one such three-story, multi-unit housing development at 190 Essex Street, in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn.
Housing Preservation and Development
Construction is now underway on a Phase I of a sprawling, mixed-use development in Coney Island, Brooklyn. Located at 1709 Surf Avenue, the complex will eventually deliver 1,000 residential units, 150,000 square feet of retail space, and around 80,000 square feet of office area.
Permits have been pre-filed for a fourteen-story mixed-use high-rise at 76 Dinsmore Place in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn. This site is three blocks away from the Norwood Avenue subway station, serviced by the J trains. The building is being developed by the NYC Housing Preservation and Development agency.
A definitive seven-building assemblage is expected to take rise in Brownsville, Brooklyn, following a recent community impact assessment and subsequent filings for permits and rezoning rights. Named the “Marcus Garvey Extension,” the new development will comprise 908,460 gross square feet with anticipated completion in 2024.
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration has selected Jonathan Rose Companies and L+M Development Partners to develop a multi-building, affordable mixed-use project at 1691 Madison Avenue, located on most of the block bound by Park and Madison avenues and East 111th and 112th streets in East Harlem.
