In an announcement from the Office of Governor Cuomo, the state has awarded development rights and construction funding for four new housing projects that will collectively create more than 2,700 affordable-supportive residential units. Herkimer Gardens, located at 483 Herkimer Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, is one of the projects to receive funding and approvals from the Governor’s $1.4 billion “Vital Brooklyn” housing initiative.

Designed by Urban Architectural Initiative, the building will be constructed to Passive House Standards, incorporating solar-voltaic shades and a green roof. Interior components will include 118 affordable homes, on-site urgent care facilities, a wellness center with physical therapy equipment, a food access assistance center, community and recreation space, and a computer lounge. Outdoor amenities include a terrace on the second floor and another on the seventh floor with an urban farm.

According to information from the developer of the property, Federation of Organizations, the total project will cost an estimated $55 million with an anticipated completion date in spring 2022.

  1. Thanks to a reporter: Mixture of different things that are found all together, and I having similar interests. It’s beautiful and large structure consisting of different colors.

  2. How affordable are they going to be okay when you’ll say a fordable is not for people that works a regular nine-to-five job what is the price range. Thank
