A rendering has been revealed of the proposed eight-story, 49-unit mixed-use project at 5108 Fourth Avenue, located on the corner of 51st Street in Sunset Park. The rendering comes as the project was recently approved by Community Board 7 as part of the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), Brooklyn Daily reported. If all approvals are granted, the new building would feature Brooklyn Public Library’s new Sunset Park branch, measuring 21,000 square feet. There would be 49 affordable rental residential units on the floors above, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms.
