Dattner Architects brings 274-unit affordable building to East New York

The 274-unit Chestnut Commons built-community/development will be one of the first affordable housing complexes to rise in East New York, Brooklyn, following its recent rezoning; the location is a large vacant lot bounded by Dinsmore Place, Chestnut Street, and Atlantic Avenue. Brought to you by our friends at Dattner Architects, the Commons will be built to passive house standards and unlike most affordable housing developments covered in articles flagged up in this briefing, it will actually serve low-income New Yorkers with 29% of units set aside for families making up to $26K/y. The building will comprise studio apartments, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedrooms, and will also have space for community organizations: a satellite campus for CUNY Kingsborough Community College, a new performing arts center by ARTS East New York, a food manufacturing incubator, and a social services center.
