Developed by Nehemiah Housing Development Fund Company, a non-profit housing affiliate for East Brooklyn Congregations in partnership with Monadnock Development, the buildings in this phase yield a total 214 rentals in a mix of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are the 214 apartments for residents with an eligible income between $18,618 to $126,900, ranging from 30 to 90 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI). The structures are part of a 45-acre development plan that brings a mix of retail, affordable apartment rentals, and townhouse home ownership.
An Environmental Assessment Statement released by the NYC Department of City Planning reveals how proposals to rezone Manhattan’s SoHo and NoHo neighborhoods could permanently alter the area. The actions aim to expand allowable residential density for multifamily buildings, spur the construction of income-restricted and permanently affordable housing, and increase available community facilities. If approved, the upzone could spur the development of more than 3,200 new apartment units, 108,000 gross square feet of retail space, and 35,000 square feet of community facilities. Estimates for residential development include up to 940 affordable apartment units.
