The New York City Housing Authority has proposed to allow private developers to build mixed-income residential towers on two parking lots at the Wyckoff Gardens public housing facility, in Boerum Hill. According to DNAinfo, the development would total 550 to 650 residential units, and the buildings would be located at 260 and 280 Wyckoff Street. Real Estate Weekly reports the units would be half affordable and half market-rate. Resident meetings will be conducted over the next month.
