Ribbon cut at Crown Heights supportive housing ￼
Officials cut the ribbon on Friday for a new affordable and supportive housing development in Crown Heights.
The 90-unit complex, at 805 East New York Ave., to be known as the Concern Heights Apartments, is a project of Concern For Independent Living, a nonprofit provider of supportive housing.
Calling this “an innovative supportive housing development” because this one is both supportive and mixed-use, the organization also said it brings more than a dozen new jobs to the Crown Heights neighborhood.
The apartment complex sits on a formerly vacant lot that was acquired by Concern in 2009. With the support of Brooklyn Community Board 9, it began construction on a six- story building which includes studios, one-bedroom and two- bedroom apartments.
