Renderings Revealed for Affordable Housing at 223-227 Vermont Street, East New York, Brooklyn

Rendering of 223-227 Vermont Street

The New York City Department of Housing Preservation will soon announce the development of a new four-story residential project in the northeast corner of East New York, Brooklyn. The three-block assemblage comprises 223, 225, and 227 Vermont Street, but is currently referred to by the DOB as 223-227 Vermont Street. Today, YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for the renderings.

Altogether, the assemblage measures 2,650 square feet, with about 75 feet of frontage along Vernon Street.

Designed by DeLaCour, Ferrara & Church Architects, the building will contain 15 units of affordable housing for low income individuals and families. While preliminary renderings seem to illustrate an open roof deck, residential amenities have not been confirmed by the project team. It is also not clear if a community facility or retail component will occupy the building’s ground level.

At this stage, details regarding construction scheduling or anticipated completion have not been revealed.

    I am very excited regarding this new, affordable expansioin effort for Brownsville. I have been living in Brownsville for a little over a year and it is clear that Brownsville is in dire need of new, affordable housing. I believe it is going to beautify the neighborhood and bring about positive change. I welcome that change.

  4. Why haven’t they informed the block residents of this project? When will they begin construction of this development? Why aren’t they focusing on building houses for homeownership instead of small scale rental units?
