East New York 27-Acre Development to Create 2,400 Units of Affordable Housing

The 27-acre redevelopment project dubbed Alafia Campus initially announced by the New York City Housing Conference in November 2021 broke ground on the first phase in early December. Located in the Brooklyn neighborhood of East New York, construction on the site that runs along Fountain Avenue near the Betts Creek waterfront will deliver upon full completion 2,400-units of affordable housing, a 15,000-square-foot outpatient medical clinic, retail space, multiple parking areas, and a mix of publicly accessible green space and recreational area. The estimated $1.2 billion multi-phase campus is being developed by the team of Apex Building Company, L+M Development Partners, Services for the UnderServed, and RisBoro Community Partnership.
