Affordable housing developer Phipps Houses is in contract to acquire the 300,000 square-foot, block-long property at 3301 Atlantic Avenue, in eastern Cypress Hill, for $38 million. The existing low-rise factory building is burnt-out following a fire in 2012.
Henry Ausch has filed applications for four multi-family buildings, each rising four stories, at 1746 Linden Boulevard and 713-715 Snediker Avenue in East New York, a block away from the New Lots Avenue subway stop on the L line.

An existing warehouse must first be removed.
