Multi-Phase Initiative to Create 4K Apartments in Brooklyn Announced by Mayor Adams

The construction of up to 4,000 new residential units along Atlantic Avenue in Central Brooklyn are projected as part of a multi-phase initiative recently announced by Mayor Eric Adams. Dubbed the Atlantic Avenue Mixed-Use Plan, as part of the initiative more than 1,500 income-restricted homes are anticipated to be created along a 13-block stretch of Atlantic Avenue. If the proposed initiative secures approval, a rezoning of the area that is primarily zoned for industrial use would open the door to the construction of dense residential buildings up to 18-stories tall. The proposed development plan will be required to go through the Department of City Planning’s lengthy Uniform Land Use Review Process (ULURP), which the mayor’s office is hoping will begin as early as next spring.
