50 Penn is envisioned to be a mixed-use beacon for residents of Cypress Hills and surrounding neighborhoods, providing access to high-quality, sustainable  affordable and moderate-income housing and healthy food choices. Located within a recently rezoned area of East New York, the new building will anchor a prominent corner along Pennsylvania Avenue. 50 Penn will include 218 apartments and is designed for family occupancy. 42 of the new apartments will be dedicated to formerly homeless and elderly households and nearly 50% of all units will be permanently affordable.

A transit-oriented, mixed-use development, this nine-story multifamily building sits adjacent to the elevated J/Z Subway (to the north of the site) and the below-grade A/C Subway. A former industrial site, it was remediated through the Brownfield Cleanup Program. The sustainable project includes green roofs, rooftop photovoltaic panels, and a highly-insulated exterior wall system for energy efficiency.  Landscaped outdoor spaces will support the healthy and well-being of the residents. Three commercial spaces activate the ground floor, including a health-food grocery store developed through the FRESH program which promotes nutritious, affordable, and fresh food in underserved neighborhoods.
