Looks like PLG residents can breathe a sigh of relief: A modest, nine-story rental building is going up on a site where formerly a controversial 20-story glass tower was planned. Yesterday Curbed reported that developer Anderson Associates is building the 133-unit affordable rental at 33 Lincoln Road. It’ll actually be two buildings connected by an enclosed corridor with frontage on both Flatbush and Lincoln. The ground floor will have two retail areas and community space. Twenty percent of the units will be affordable to low-income families and 80 percent affordable to middle-income families. This plan was met with some positive response from Community Board Nine’s land-use review committee, according to Curbed. It still has to be approved by the full board on Oct. 23. Fastest-case scenario, the developer will break ground in three months.
