Progress continues to be made on the affordable housing development in the Ocean Hill-Brownsville neighborhood in Brooklyn. After 16 years of vacancy and, finally, demolition, the site is now making major strides.
- Project leaders are Blue Sea Development and Dattner Architects, selected in 2013 by the New York City Housing Authority and New York City Housing Preservation and Development.
- Plans illustrate a 4.5-acre site with 364 units. A total of 80 units will be NYCHA public housing and 284 will be affordable housing units.
- Construction is broken into three phases. The second stage of construction, Prospect Plaza North, is currently wrapping up.
- Keeping the same name as the housing project that was demolished in 2000, the development is slated for completion by 2017.
