It’s been tough to keep up with everything happening at Navy Green, the large development that’ll someday boast 460 residential units as well as substantial commercial space. The first completed building, at 45 Clermont, is an affordable rental. Across the street, fronting Vanderbilt, an interesting red-and-white brick facade is bring put into place on the second building. (Construction started in December.) And, finally, the third building now being constructed, at 130 Flushing Avenue, has almost reached full height. Permits were first approved for the 12-story structure, which will have ground-floor commercial space, in January. When all’s said and done, the project will consist of four buildings and 23 townhomes.

Applications are now being accepted for 100 affordable rental units at 45 Clermont, one of the buildings that’s being constructed as part of the larger Navy Green development. You can download one from the building’s website. According to the site, the building will have a community room, laundry room and a “landscaped common green” that includes a playground. The deadline for applying is September 6, 2011; no word on when the building will be move-in ready. Click through to see the rents and income qualifications for the available apartments.
Our Community Board 2 correspondent reports back on Wednesday night’s general meeting; the Local also has extensive coverage of the meeting.
A Public hearing about Navy Green (previously reported) preceded the general meeting with a presentation by the developer. No one spoke in opposition but one person questioned the decision to include no on site parking. A second public hearing was held concerning 470 Vanderbilt Avenue‘s rezoning (also previously reported) â€” the developer made a presentation (in which he mentioned that he was indeed still in discussions with Whole Foods) and there were no other speakers. The Public hearings were closed and the meeting began. Navy Green (at left) was approved as requested unanimously with one abstention. A second vote passed 23-12 requesting that some onsite parking be incorporated. 470 Vanderbilt (at right) was approved unanimously with no abstentions.
Eight new Board members were introduced. They are Kay Casanova, Thomas Conoscenti, Michael Epstein, Terrance Know, Kenn Lowy, Jesse Strauss Alejandro, Varela and Siobhan Watson. Two of eight have college degrees in City Planning. Rob Perris gave a shout out to Brownstoner.com in his presentation on the Community Board’s new web site â€” to be activated shortly. Rob was mentioned in a comment on the post about the Community Board rally at City Hall.
