On October 2, 2023, the City Planning Commission voted to approve an application for a mixed-use development at 534 Coney Island Avenue in the Flatbush and Kensington area of Brooklyn.
The eleven-story building will have 43 units, including eleven permanently affordable units at a rate between 60 to 80 percent area median income. The building will have eight market rate and two permanently affordable one-bedroom apartments, and 24 market rate and nine permanently affordable two-bedroom apartments. The building will also include 3000 square feet of commercial space and 19 off-street parking spaces.
The project had previously gotten an approval from Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso and a conditional approval from Brooklyn Community Board 12. The City Planning Commission held a public hearing on the application on August 23, 2023. For CityLand’s previous coverage, click here.
The City Planning Commission voted to unanimously approve the project. The application now goes to the City Council for review.
