According to YIMBY, Xenolith Partners has announced plans to jumpstart construction at the site of a derelict and abandoned police precinct in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Located at 1546 East New York Avenue, the building is over 100 years old and once functioned as the 65th, then later the 73rd Police Precinct with jurisdiction over the northern corner of Brownsville.
The property is owned by Family Services Network of New York, a non profit community-based organization, which provides comprehensive health and human services, throughout the five boroughs. According to their website, since 1981, we have been meeting the complex community health needs of a diverse population, with compassion and the rendering of quality service(s).
The new development will have 95 supportive and affordable housing units and a 5,000 sq ft community space.
Family Services will provide support services to 60 percent of the units. The other 40 percent of the units will be set aside for households earning 40-80 percent of the area’s median income.
More details on this development will be posted on BrownsvilleNews.org when the information becomes available, including application information.
