Brooklyn Space


Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz (at center with shovel) joins others to break ground for Atlantic Terrace, a mixed-use and affordable housing development on Atlantic Avenue at South Oxford Street.


A project of the FAC and partners MAP Development and Line Development, Atlantic Terrace will contain 80 co-op units, half of which will be affordable to low-income families and another 25 percent affordable to middle-income residents. The building, which will have 12,000 square feet of ground floor retail space and 87 subgrade parking spaces, will also be green and a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold building – the largest affordable green building in Brooklyn.


Said Markowitz, “Atlantic Terrace is a shining beacon for the future of environmentally-conscious and affordable housing in Brooklyn and beyond. From a former brownfield will spring Brooklyn’s largest affordable green building, testament to what happens when the private and public sectors roll up their sleeves and work together for the betterment of both the economy and the environment. Affordable and green – it’s what we call a match made in Brooklyn!”
