This week in East New York ground was broken to prepare for a new 218 unit affordable housing development at 50 Pennsylvania Ave., between Atlantic Ave and Fulton St. The property will be managed by RiseBoro Community Partners, a non-profit that operates senior centers throughout Brooklyn.
The development will bring affordable and moderate housing to East New York, along with retail space on the ground floor. The development is expected to bring a healthy food grocery store as well.
42 of the 218 units will be set aside for formerly homeless and elderly, of which RiseBoro will provide support services. The development will also include on-site laundry facilities, a community room, fitness lounge and a landscaped terrace on the second floor.
The developers, Pennrose LLC, expect the project to be completed in July 2021.
