A mixed-use development will bring 1,165 fully-affordable units to the Brooklyn neighborhood of East New York, an evolving community in need of new and preserved housing. Dattner Architects released this week new renderings of the development, dubbed Atlantic Chestnut after the two streets it will face (h/t CityRealty). The complex, which will include three 14-story buildings, sits on 4.5 acres and measures over a million square feet. The three buildings will be completed in successive phases, with the first scheduled to wrap up in 2020, the second in 2021 and the third in 2022.
The building, which is being developed for Phipps Houses, a nonprofit developer and manager of affordable housing in the city, will have sustainable features. Although it will not be considered a Passive House like Dattner’s other East New York affordable development, Chesnut Commons, Atlantic Chestnut will have solar Photovoltaic arrays on the roof and a CoGen system.
Residents will have access to amenities like landscaped courtyards and a “green ribbon” roof that runs along the ninth floor of each building.
The development is part of the city’s East New York Neighborhood Plan, an effort by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration to foster affordable housing preservation and development and economic growth. The plan includes promoting commercial development, investing in new open spaces and transforming busy streets, like Atlantic Avenue, into safer corridors for residents.
