71 Wolcott Street

A group of 35 families has moved into new units at Red Hook Homes, the largest affordable homeownership opportunity in the history of Red Hook, the Brooklyn Eagle reported. As a project of the Fifth Avenue Committee, it’s also the single largest housing development project that the FAC has completed in its 32-year history, said Michelle de la Uz, FAC’s executive director. The development, designed by Harden Van Arnam Architects, is a 60-unit mixed-income co-op with 40 affordable apartments and 20 market-rate units. It features a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments in three buildings — two adjoining buildings at 71 and 79 Wolcott Street between Van Brunt and Richards streets, with a third at 135 Coffey Street. According to de la Uz, 35 of the affordable units have been sold so far, with the remaining five under contract. Amenities include landscaped outdoor space, parking and a rooftop terrace with views of the Statue of Liberty. [Brooklyn Eagle]
