The developers behind Navy Green have re-filed new building permits for the first of 23 market-rate townhouses in the affordable Fort Greene development, which already includes two mixed-income rental buildings and a third for supportive housing. L+M Development and Dunn Development will build the three-story single-family homes on a large vacant lot at 24 Vanderbilt Avenue, half a block from the Navy Yard.

The massive publicly funded project already has a 12-story building at 7 Clermont Avenue, an eight-story one at 45 Clermont, and the supportive housing building at 40 Vanderbilt Avenue. Until now, Navy Green has cost an estimated $85,200,000 in city and state funds. GMAP

Correction: The townhouses are market rate, not affordable.

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.

An affordable housing development is going up in Williamsburg at 59 Frost Street. Dunn Development, also responsible for the Navy Green and Putnam Court, will develop the property. Right now it’s too early for renderings, but the plan is to build 47 units of affordable housing over seven stories. Construction should start in April. There’s currently a warehouse at the site. The developers haven’t yet filed demolition permits and the DOB disapproved new building plans earlier this month. GMAP

The Navy Green, the massive affordable development under construction between Flushing, Park Avenue, Vanderbilt and Waverly Avenue, was recently recognized by the The New York State Association for Affordable Housing. NYSAFAH held its first annual Awards for Excellence Fall Reception last week and awarded Dunn Development and L+M Development Partners the “Downstate Project of the Year.” (An award goes to an upstate project, as well.) The developers were judged upon design, financing, construction techniques, affordability, community need, supportive services and energy efficiency. Currently three building are finished at the project. Once complete, there will be four multifamily buildings, 23 townhomes, 8,000 square feet of ground floor retail and community facility space, and a 32,000-square-foot common green.

The Pratt Area Community Council is still accepting applications for 40 Vanderbilt, the affordable studio apartment building within the under-construction Navy Green complex. PACC held the first lottery here last year. According to a bulletin by Community Board Two, studio units are available for single adults with incomes ranging from $21,774 to $28,650, and monthly rents are between $492 and $664. The units come furnished and with on-site social services provided by the nonprofit Brooklyn Community Housing and Services. Apartments are available for immediate occupancy. Here are all the details about the building and how to apply. When all is said and done at the Navy Green project, there will be 458 units total (both affordable and market rate) as well as commercial space, a common green area, and community facility spaces. Update: this post has been updated due to previous inaccuracies about the rents and income ranges.

The third and recently completed Navy Green building is gearing up for occupancy. Straight from developer Martin Dunn: “Move-ins are happening soon at the newest Navy Green building at 7 Clermont Avenue. We got a TCO on Oct. 31, and people are signing leases and preparing to move in.” The lottery began here in the spring. In addition to the first three affordable buildings, market-rate condos are planned on Vanderbilt and Flushing, as well as 23 single-family townhouses on both Clermont and Vanderbilt. The whole development will take a little less than three years to complete.

Pictured above is the under-construction commercial space along Flushing Avenue. It’s part of the massive Navy Green development going up between Vanderbilt, Clermont, Flushing and Park. The attached building, called 7 Clermont, began accepting applications for affordable housing units this spring. The entire development will eventually consist of four buildings and 23 townhouses. Three of those buildings (two of which are affordable rentals, the other supportive housing) are up. GMAP

Here’s the completed facade for the second Navy Green Building, 40 Vanderbilt Avenue. Quite the bold statement, do you like it? 40 Vanderbilt will house low-income singles and individuals who have been chronically homeless. Applications were released for the units this past September. The third building, 7 Clermont Avenue, is receiving its facade and you can see a picture after the jump. The lottery for that building should begin this summer.

According to the developer of Navy Green, move-ins started during the last week of December at 45 Clermont Avenue, the first completed building of the multi-property development. The building is a 100-unit affordable rental building. The second Navy Green building, 40 Vanderbilt Avenue, should be complete by February or March. The Pratt Area Community Council is renting out affordable studio apartments to individuals and the chronically homeless. A lottery for affordable units at a third building in the complex, 7 Clermont Avenue, should take place this summer.
