City officials have selected seven development teams to build a total of 400 affordable housing units in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx.

The units will be located on 67 vacant and publicly owned lots throughout the three boroughs, and the 100 percent affordable projects are part of the Department of Housing Preservation and Development’s controversial infill housing plan, according to the New York Daily News.

The developers chosen were Bronx Pro, Lemor Realty and Iris Development, MHANY, East Brooklyn Congregations, Shelter Rock Builders, JMR and Alembic Community Development, and Fifth Avenue Committee and Habitat for Humanity.

The projects will be located at seven cluster sites in central Harlem, East New York, Brownsville, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Melrose and Fordham. Addresses at the Bedford-Stuyvesant site include 821 Willoughby Avenue, 278 Bainbridge Street, 179 Chauncey Street, 772 Myrtle Avenue and 890 Myrtle Avenue.

In the last two months month, B&B Urban filed plans to bring a 100-unit affordable complex to Cypress Hills and Sav Enterprises submitted paperwork to bring a 319-unit affordable project to the Bronx’s West Farms neighborhood.  [NYDN] – Eddie Small
