Non-profit affordable housing developer Phipps Houses is now proposing a 10-story, 220-unit all-affordable residential building at 50-25 Barnett Avenue, in northern Sunnyside, five blocks south of the Northern Boulevard stop on the M and R subways. According to DNAinfo, a pre-k center is also planned, and units would cater to low, middle and moderate income families. An environmental review is currently underway on the project, which would be built on a vacant plot, and city approval is required, as the land would be rezoned. ULURP is expected to begin later this year.

  1. This is fantastic news – so much of the transit-rich sunnyside yards area (m/r trains at steinway, 46th street and northern blvd) is wasted on single-story shopping malls, parking lots, and industrial buildings.

    maybe someone can redevelop the massive and utterly useless guitar world and toys r us stores as affordable housing next…
