On June 26, 2024, the City Planning Commission voted to approve the 3033 Avenue V Rezoning application. The application enables the construction of a nine-story mixed use development. The project is located in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn and the current site consists of a one-story commercial building with eleven businesses on the north side of Avenue V between Ford and Coyle Streets. The project site is located across the street from the Nostrand Houses. 

The building will have 109 residential units, including 27 affordable units. The building will have 37 studios, 43 one-bedroom, 25 two-bedroom and four three-bedroom units. The building will feature 13,820 square feet of ground floor retail. The building also includes 109 attended parking spaces on two sub-cellar levels, which was included at the request of Brooklyn Community Board 15. The existing commercial tenants will be given the first option to reoccupy the new ground floor retail space. 

At the public hearing on May 29, 2024, the applicant responded to flooding concerns regarding the sub-cellar parking, but stated that there was currently a cellar there now that had never experienced flooding. 

Both Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso and Brooklyn Community Board 15 conditionally approved the project. While the community board requested the 109 spaces, Borough President Reynoso objected to the number of parking spaces and added expenses of the use of parking risers. Under the requested zoning changes, only half of the spaces would be required. 

The City Planning Commission voted unanimously to approve the application 

The City Council will review the application next.
