The multi-family residential and mixed-use project on Linden Boulevard in East New York began with a full zoning analysis and report. Following a successful ULURP process the site was rezoned for residential use, and four buildings have been designed for the site. Leveraging the new Zoning for Quality and Affordability code changes, we were able to create around 498 units of mixed-income affordable housing and community space atop a commercial base. Spread across four distinct buildings and surrounding a landscaped courtyard terrace, the development will bring much needed amenity, community services and robust pedestrian activity to the high-traffic (vehicular) avenue in South Ozone Park, Brooklyn. Building 1 will contain multi-family residential and retail programs; buildings 2 and 4 will contain multi-family units and community facility space and building 3 will house community facility, supportive housing and administrative offices for a local non-profit. At a moment of abundant affordable housing development, a residential project of this size creates a destination in a neighborhood adding character, life and service while ushering in a new wave of development.
