Recent renderings offer a first look at the Catholic Charities Loreto Apartments, an affordable housing development under construction at 1677 St. Marks Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Designed by RKTB Architects and developed by Catholic Charities Brooklyn & Queens, the project will contain 135 apartments reserved for low-income seniors. The development will replace the Our Lady of Loreto Church, which was demolished in 2017.
The structure’s façade is primarily comprised of red brick interspersed with white and taupe cementitious materials. Upper levels are completely set back from the street wall elevation to make room for roof-level outdoor space. The design makes use of an abundance of floor-to-ceiling glass, ensuring ample natural light exposure for residences.
The property will contain about 80 apartments for formerly homeless seniors, and affordable independent residences for seniors, known as AIRS, for tenants at 40 to 50 percent of the area median income. Residents will also have access to on-site supportive services and community rooms that are designed to accommodate a variety of programing.
The environmentally conscious design also features rooftop solar panels to improve energy efficiency.
