ArtBridge, Slate Property Group, and RiseBoro Community Partnership have introduced “Brownsville Reflections: Past, Present, Future,” a 600-foot-long public art installation at 326 Rockaway Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Part of the City Canvas pilot program, the exhibition showcases the talents of local artists Jocelyn Goode, Laurent Chevalier, and Sophia Victor on the construction barriers of an upcoming affordable housing project.
Construction is now underway at 97 Glenmore Avenue, the site of a forthcoming affordable housing development in Brownsville, Brooklyn. The building will debut as Glenmore Manor led by private real estate company Brisa Builders Development, non-profit community developer African American Planning Commission Inc., and affordable housing owner-developer Lemle & Wolff Companies.

Boyland Street and Rockaway Avenue, the lot is near the Broadway Junction subway stations, serviced by the A, C, J, and L trains. Etai Vardi of QN 48 LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction has broken ground at 326 Rockaway Avenue, the site of a 17-story affordable housing development in Brownsville, Brooklyn.

Slate appointed multidisciplinary design studio OSD (the Office of Strategy and Design) as the landscape architects responsible for designing a welcoming outdoor experience.
