East New York Apartment Building That Will Be 100 Percent Affordable Has Topped Out


Linwood Park Apartments, a 10-story affordable housing complex in East New York, has topped out.

A recent visit showed the building, located at 315 Linwood Street (on the corner of Atlantic Avenue), was still circled by a construction fence and the facade had not yet started to rise.

The building falls within the area of East New York that was rezoned in 2016.

Alan Bell of B&B Urban is the developer along with L+M Development. Bell purchased the site — a combination of three lots — from Charlie’s Car Care Center, which, along with Sal’s Tire, previously occupied the space, for $2.4 million in 2015.

Michael S. Gelfand, the vice president and treasurer of MHG Architects, is the architect of record. According to building permits, the new structure will have 100 apartments in total. The developer’s website says that 30 units will be dedicated to supportive housing for formerly homeless families, 10 units for families earning under 50 percent and 59 units for families earning under 60 percent of the area median income.
