An eight-story affordable housing project has been completed at 1422 Crotona Park East, in Crotona Park East, The Bronx. The site is right across the street from Crotona Park, which has several baseball fields, and other sports facilities. The Freeman Street Subway Station is six blocks away, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The Doe Fund, whose focus on rehabilitating people with histories of homelessness, incarceration, or substance abuse, is responsible for the development. The Briarwood Organization is responsible for the general contracting.

Applications filed for a 255-unit affordable building at 2119 Caton Avenue aren’t the only progress YIMBY has to report for Flatbush today. Another new affordable and supportive housing development has now topped-out at 1355 Rogers Avenue, dubbed Crystal Tower, and designed by Delacour, Ferrara, & Church Architects. The project has 123 apartments spanning eight floors and 91,100 square feet of residential space; 74 of those units will be reserved for formerly homeless individuals, 41 will be for seniors and their families that are currently on the NYCHA waitlist, and eight three-bedroom units will be available to the community at large via lottery. Completion is expected by 2018, and the site is being developed by The Doe Fund and Crystal Ball, LLC.
