The affordable housing lottery has launched for 90 Sands Street, a 30-story mixed-use building in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Designed by Beyer Blinder Belle and developed by Breaking Ground, the conversion will yield 491 residences. Available on NYC Housing Connect are 185 units for residents at 30 to 120 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $18,412 to $128,880.
Construction is complete on 168 Plymouth Street, a ten-story residential project in the DUMBO, Brooklyn Historic District. Designed and developed by Alloy Development, the project involved the renovation and repurposing of the 102-year-old Concrete Daylight Factory at 42 Jay Street and the 132-year-old Brick & Timber Building at 50 Jay Street, with a one-story extension above the latter’s parapet. The property yields 46 units at the southwestern corner of Plymouth and Jay Streets, a short walk from the East River waterfront and Brooklyn Bridge Park.

The residential component comprises Front & York, a collection of 408 condominiums from CIM Group and LIVWRK, and Magnolia DUMBO, a slate of 320 rental units from RXR Realty with marketing led by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing Group.
