In the borderlands between East New York, Brownsville and Ocean Hill, one developer is planning supportive housing on an industrial block that the city plans to rezone for residential.

A rather sad little three-story storefront with apartments above it has been neglected for years at 1516 Fulton Street, on the corner of Throop Avenue and across the street from the entrance to the C train.

Trader Joe’s has leased 18,000 square feet in Alliance Private Capital’s planned 45,000 square-foot mixed-use commercial building, which will include offices on the upper levels, at 206 Kent Avenue, a block in from the East River in Williamsburg. According to Crain’s Business, the grocery store will take space on the ground and basement levels. New building applications have not yet been filed, but the lot is currently vacant; the site’s former two-story warehouse was demolished in 2013.
