In 2008, in response to a joint RFP by NYCHA and HPD, Stanley Commons, LLC was awarded development rights to an underutilized parking lot on environmentally remediated land in Brooklyn’s East New York neighborhood. The winning plan, originally proposed as affordable two-and-three family town houses, was re-envisioned post-2008 as a six-building development comprising 240 rental apartments.
The re-imagined project includes a 19,000 square foot community facility providing social services, to be operated jointly by Good Shepherds Services, a social service and youth development organization and Man Up Inc., a Brooklyn-based social service agency focusing on neighborhood improvement.
The project will provide rental apartments for house-holds earning 60% of AMI and is slated for occupancy commencing in early 2017.
