Brooklyn’s Lincoln Road may be site of new rental, with affordable and below market-rate units

Prospect Lefferts Garden could soon be getting a nine-story, 133-unit building. Situated near Prospect Park, at 33 Lincoln Road, the building would have 20 percent of its units be affordable to low-income tenants and the rest of the units would be 10 percent below the market rate. The ground floor would include two retail spaces and a community space. Other building amenities include underground parking and storage for rent, a gym, a café and a roof deck.

Tom Anderson of Anderson Associates last night presented the plan for the property, which would sit atop a 26,000-square-foot lot, to the ULURP Committee of Brooklyn Community Board 9. Building permits are still filtering through the Department of Buildings and the plan will go to the full Community Board toward the end of the month.

The Department of Housing Preservation and Development has already green-lit the proposal.

The lot was formerly slated to be the site of Park Tower, an 86-unit condominium, which was the subject of protest mainly due to its 20-story height. The lot was put on the market in 2010. [Curbed]
