Affordable Housing Planned Near BAM


    According to Community Board Two, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development plans to release an RFP for a development site in the BAM Cultural District. The area in question is on the northwest corner of Lafayette Avenue and Ashland Place, right across from BAM’s Peter Jay Sharp Building. There are no details yet but since the RFP is coming from HPD, this can only mean affordable housing is coming to the area, certainly good news in a development-heavy neighborhood that hasn’t seen much affordable housing recently. An informational meeting on the matter will be held during the CB2 land use committee meeting at 6 pm on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 5 MetroTech Center.
