Project Description

One of the first developments stemming from the East New York Neighborhood Plan, Chestnut Commons will provide 275 affordable housing units for formerly homeless and low-income households. Community-centric in both design and development, Chestnut Commons will provide truly mixed-use programming. The design integrates community and recreational spaces, including a satellite campus for CUNY Kingsborough Community College, a food manufacturing incubator, a credit union, a social services center, a landscaped roof terrace, and rooftop planting beds for vegetable cultivation.

Developed and operated by locally-based organizations with strong community ties, Chestnut Commons will strengthen the neighborhood with the inclusion of economic development and educational opportunities, arts programming, and job training services. Keeping with the project vision for a healthy, sustainable, and affordable community, the 14-story building is being designed to Passive House standards and in compliance with NYC Active Design Guidelines to promote healthy living for residents.
