Urban Village Mega-Complex Forward in East New York, Brooklyn
Plans to construct the 10.5-acre Urban Village mega-complex in East New York, Brooklyn, are now under review by the New York City Department of Buildings. The complex is being developed by Gotham Organization, Monadnock Development, and the Christian Cultural Center and is bound by Pennsylvania Avenue to the northeast, Flatlands Avenue to the northwest, and Louisiana Avenue to the southwest.
Designed by Practice for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU), led by architect Vishaan Chakrabarti, the complex will yield roughly 1.7 million square feet spread across 11 new buildings. This includes 675 affordable housing units, 200 supportive senior housing units, and 100 affordable home ownership opportunities, for a total collection of 1,975 apartments.
The filings currently under review pertain only to the first two phases of the development, referred to as phase 1A and phase 1B. Together, these initial phases will create 817 permanently affordable rental units, 27,000 square feet of commercial space, and 107,000 square feet of below-grade parking.
