East New York has been in the headlines recently thanks to a major rezoning that is paving the way for the area’s transformation into a denser and fully revitalized neighborhood, and now YIMBY has the first images of a major new development coming to 1427-1449 Loring Avenue. The plans, designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning, PC, would result in four buildings covering an entire city block.
