The buildings make use of smaller, vacant spaces to provide affordable housing. On April 27, 2022, the City Planning Commission voted to approve an application for four new buildings with a combined 46 total affordable units in East New York. The four sites are located at 492-496 Glenmore Avenue, 2358-2362 Pitkin Avenue, 943 Dumont Avenue, and 743 Blake Avenue, as part of the Sutter Place Neighborhood Construction Program project. All sites are City-owned and currently vacant lots.

2358-2362 Pitkin Avenue is a proposed eight-story elevator building with 26 affordable units featuring a mix of one- and two- bedroom units. 492-496 Glenmore Avenue is a proposed three-story walk-up building with six affordable two- or three-bedroom rental units. 943 Dumont Avenue is a proposed three-story building with six affordable units that will all be three-bedrooms. 743 Blake Avenue is a proposed four-story building with eight affordable three-bedroom units.

Across the four buildings, the units will be offered at a range of 30 to 70 percent area median income, with 85 percent of the units available at 60 percent AMI or less. At those ranges, a one-bedroom unit could range between approximately $506 to $1,176, and a three-bedroom could range from approximately $675 to $1,916. A regulatory agreement at the time of closing will bound and dictate the level and length of affordability. For CityLand’s full prior coverage of this application, click here
