Developer Self Help Community Services is going to build a 13-story residential complex for low-income seniors next to SUNY Downstate Hospital in Flatbush. New building applications were filed last week for the non-profit development at 333 Lenox Road, which will have 58 units.
IBI Group is designing the 49,793-square-foot building. The development will also include 12 outdoor parking spaces, a roof deck, a computer room and community space. The lot currently has two small houses, and demolition permits have not yet been filed. Self Help bought the property for $999,995 in December 2012, according to public records.
As the Park Slope assisted living center Prospect Park Residence is in litigation over its planned closing, it’s encouraging to see more senior housing being built. GMAP
