Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams has identified a number of new locations for creating additional affordable housing in the borough.

One of the locations that the beep named in a new report is part of the parking lot at the Brooklyn Army Terminal, according to the Wall Street Journal. Rezoning of the site to facilitate residential development could bring 700 units to the location, Adams told the newspaper. The de Blasio administration has been promoting job growth at the 4.4 million-square-foot complex on the Sunset Park waterfront.

Many of the sites proposed in the report come with big challenges, such as solving pending litigation, erecting platforms over rail yards and environmental remediation, according to the Journal.

The report also mentions Broadway Triangle, a roughly 31-acre lot on the border of Williamsburg and Bedford Stuyvesant that was rezoned for residential use in 2009. Legal wrangling has delayed development on the site.

Adams also suggested city-owned parking lots in Brighton Beach, Bensonhurst and Midwood as possible locations. Those sites could hold roughly 2,000 new affordable units. [WSJ] — Claire Moses
