Developer to Build Affordable Housing on Site of Kings County Psych Ward in Flatbush


Nonprofit developer CAMBA said it plans to demo the former psych ward at Kings County Hospital in Flatbush and build affordable housing in its place, DNAinfo reported. The building at 560 Winthrop Street closed in 2009.

The new building, pictured above, will make up the second phase of CAMBA Gardens, which occupies the sites of two other former hospital buildings nearby on Albany Avenue.

This development will have 293 apartments over 97,000 square feet. The architect is John Woelfling of Dattner Architects. The project is expected to wrap in 2016.
