Located within the Cypress Hills neighborhood of Brooklyn, this mixed-use development includes new construction and the adaptive re-use of the landmarked Empire State Dairy complex. The new 14-story building will create 335 units of affordable housing with ground floor space for commercial and community facility uses. A second-floor interior amenities space overlooks two landscaped terraces.
Part of the rezoning along Atlantic Avenue in East New York, the preservation of the Empire State Dairy Building will be an important bridge between the industrial past of the neighborhood and the future development. The adaptive re-use of the Empire State Dairy buildings saves embodied energy and reduces landfill waste. The project is participating in the Enterprise Green Communities program to provide sustainable, healthy, and affordable homes.
