Brooklyn to Get 109 Affordable Housing Units by October 2025

Brooklyn, NYC: Services for the UnderServed (S:US) and L+M Development Partners have finalized a $78 million agreement. The Marcus Garvey Extension Phase 2 Building G in Brownsville, Brooklyn, is the subject of the agreement.

Beginning this month, the project has 109 affordable housing units planned by October 2025. SLCE Architects designed the structure.

The structure will have 118,066 square feet of space and eight floors. There will be 14 three-bedroom homes, 24 two-bedroom units, 46 one-bedroom units, and 25 studios. The New York City 15/15 Supportive Housing Initiative will convert 55 of these apartments into supportive housing. S:US will offer services right there.

All of the building’s functions, including heating and cooling, will be powered by electricity. There will be solar panels on it as well. Outdoor space, a recreation area, a gym, a bicycle storage room, and a services office are among the other amenities.

The collaboration between L+M Development Partners and S:US makes Elaine Braithwaite, Senior Director, proud. She is confident that Brownsville will receive much-needed affordable homes thanks to the project. In agreement, Perry Perlmutter, President and CEO of S:US, emphasizes the importance of housing in reducing homelessness.

NYSERDA’s Multifamily Performance Program will also include the building. This implies that appliances like electric stovetops, Energy Star refrigerators, dishwashers, and laundry washers will be included.

Additionally, it will feature sensor-equipped, energy-efficient lighting fixtures with separate apartment metering. Each residence will also have access to a beautifully designed yard.

The Marcus Garvey Extension Project’s second phase will consist of three buildings housing 285 affordable flats. In addition, there will be 19 parking spaces and about 14,300 square feet of community and retail space. Subsequent to its completion in December 2019, the initial phase of construction yielded 348 affordable housing units, along with approximately 12,000 square feet of community and retail space.
