Residential Development On Mcguinness Boulevard in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood is getting the green light, DNAinfo reported. Williamsburg’s Community Board 1 voted yesterday to rezone the strip, the only one in the area that was not zoned residential, to allow a proposed mixed-use project to rise.

The 155,000-square-foot development, proposed by owner Paul Pullo, would include 28 units of affordable housing, small retail units on the ground floor and a parking lot with nearly 100 spots, the developer told DNAinfo.

Richard Mazur, executive director of North Brooklyn Development Corp., told the website that the area needs more housing. “I’m partnering with Paul Pullo specifically for the 28 units of affordable housing, for our population that really needs it” Mazur told DNAinfo. “I’ve got at least 500 people on a list needing affordable housing in the neighborhood.” [DNAinfo] — Guelda Voien
