City officials, project partners, and community leaders recently joined to celebrate the commencement of construction at Dekalb Commons, a three-building affordable housing complex in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Designed by Magnusson Architecture & Planning and developed in partnership by the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation and St. Nicks Alliance, the buildings are currently addressed as 652 Dekalb Avenue, 639 Dekalb Avenue, and 1187 Fulton Street.
The complex will include a pair of seven-story buildings and one four-story building that together yield 85 affordable units. This includes 13 apartments set aside for formerly homeless individuals. There will also be around 1,190 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.
