City, Developers Cut Ribbon at Navy Green Development in Fort Greene


City officials and developers celebrated the completion yesterday of the first phase of Navy Green, a massive publicly funded housing development near the Navy Yard. L+M Development and Dunn Development collaborated on the project, which includes two mixed-income rental buildings and a supportive housing building. So far, Navy Green has cost roughly $85,200,000 in city and state funds.

The 12-story, mixed-income building at 7 Clermont Avenue has 112 units — a mix of studios, one-, two- and three-bedrooms — for a total of 110,640 square feet of residential space and 5,916 square feet of community space. Another building at 45 Clermont is an eight-story, low-income rental building with 101 units. Finally, 40 Vanderbilt Avenue, the PACC Supportive Housing building, has 98 units for formerly homeless and low-income people and offers onsite services, such as access to medical care, recreation and vocational training. A 32,000-square-foot common green links the three finished buildings and features an open lawn, children’s play area and seating.

The Department of Housing Preservation and Development tells us the final phase of development will be a mixed-income condo building at 8 Vanderbilt Avenue. The twelve-story building will have 98 condo units, with 74 units at sales prices affordable to moderate and middle-income households and 24 units sold at market rates. There will also be 23 market-rate, single-family townhouses on Clermont and Vanderbilt Avenues to round out the development. Construction is slated to start in December on both projects.
