NEW YORK CITY—Pelham, NY-based MacQuesten Development has announced plans to build a mixed-use transit-oriented development project in the Ocean Hill-Brownsville section of Brooklyn.
The six-story development located at 1510-1524 Broadway on the corner of Hancock Street, will feature 65 affordable rental apartments along with approximately 11,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
MacQuesten is also building another TOD project in Brooklyn. In the East New York section, MacQuesten is constructing Van Sinderen Plaza, a $56-million, 193,000-square-foot complex that when completed will feature 130 affordable rental apartments and more than 25,000 square feet of retail and community space. Located at 679 Van Sinderen and 180 New Lots avenues, the complex will consist of two seven-story buildings featuring one-, two- and three-bedroom rental apartments.
“We are very excited about our newest project in Brooklyn. This innovative transit-oriented development will provide area residents with well-designed affordable apartments and attractive retail stores while adding new vitality to the neighborhood. We are committed to building sustainable multi-family housing for the communities where they are needed most,” says Rella Fogliano, founder and CEO of MacQuesten Development.
Its latest Brooklyn project on Broadway will be comprised of 26 one-bedroom units, 22 two-bedroom, 11 three-bedroom and six studios.
Amenities will include a 7,000-square-foot outdoor courtyard located on the second floor; 1,000-square-foot residential lounge and kids playroom on the first floor; a 700-square-foot resident lounge on the second floor; 45-bike parking spaces on the first floor and in the cellar and a laundry room on the first floor. There will be 39 parking spaces for the residential units and retail tenants.
In June, the New Rochelle City Council selected MacQuesten for a $10-million high-rise project there. The firm plans to build a 27-story mixed-use building at the current site of the city’s Fire Station #1 at 45 Harrison St.
