Rezoning Application Withdrawn for Seven-Story, 209-Unit Affordable Residential Building at 50-25 Barnett Avenue, Sunnyside

In March, YIMBY reported that the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) kicked off for the 10-story, 220-unit mixed-use building proposed at 50-25 Barnett Avenue, in Sunnyside. Earlier this week, developer Phipps Houses withdrew their application for the project, Politico reported, which means the project has been cancelled. The ULURP process was suppose to conclude by the end of this month. Since March, it appears the developer scaled down the project to seven stories and 209 units, but that move proved unsuccessful in relieving opposition. It would have included a 4,000-square-foot pre-K school on the ground floor and between 25 to 30 percent of the units would have rented at below-market rates through the housing lottery. New plans for the site have not been revealed, but it’s zoned for up to 60,000 square feet of commercial and community facility space as-of-right.

  1. Hmmmmm oposition? Sounded like a good proposal?

  2. Read another article. Seems like management issues with tenants on a bigger property they own.

  3. The project doesn’t abandon the rezoning, from its property policy with standards of development.
