JMH Development and Madison Estates just won Landmarks approval to transform the Brooklyn Heights Cinema into apartments, but their first project to rise in a historic district was the Townhouses of Cobble Hill, at 110-126 Congress Street.

Fifteen years ago, the city emptied out the block-long Prospect Plaza housing project in Ocean Hill, Brooklyn, promising to redevelop and move the 1,500 former residents back in. Last year, NYCHA finally demolished the four dilapidated apartment towers and began construction on 364 units of affordable housing. YIMBY recently stopped by the site on Park and Prospect Places between Saratoga and Howard Avenues. Phase 1 of the development has taken shape on the north side of Prospect Place, and windows are already going in on both buildings.
