The final phase of the massive affordable housing complex known as Prospect Plaza, located at 1845 Sterling Place in Ocean Hill, is getting close to the finish line.
Families living in the public housing project it will replace were kicked out of their homes 17 years ago.
The City is moving ahead with plans for the long-delayed public housing project in Brownsville known as Prospect Plaza. On Monday, the New York City Housing Authority filed plans for the third and final building in the complex, at 1845 Sterling Place. (The Real Deal was the first to write about the filing; NY YIMBY had more info.)
In 2000, the city moved 1,500 residents out of three behemoth public housing towers at the site, saying they’d have new apartments for residents by 2005. But as readers may recall, it wasn’t until 2014 that NYCHA and developers finally demolished the long-vacant buildings.
