Real estate development firm Alloy Development has made revisions to its 80 Flatbush project in Brooklyn following public feedback. Amendments to the proposal, which is being developed with the New York City Educational Construction Fund, reflect feedback provided over the course of more than 100 meetings with community stakeholders over the past 18 months, according to a report in the Construction Specifier.
80 Flatbush is a mixed-use development of five buildings in downtown Brooklyn. The project includes two new public schools, affordable and market-rate housing, office space, retail and a cultural center.
The proposed development includes the creation of about 200 new permanently affordable units and 700 market-rate units.
Further, the project, which is located on Flatbush Ave, adjacent to Atlantic Terminal, will bring two new public schools with a total of 700 seats to downtown Brooklyn. One of the schools will serve as a replacement facility for the Khalil Gibran International Academy, while the second school will be a new elementary school that will serve the local community and address downtown’s severe school seat need. Additionally, the schools will provide valuable auditorium space and gymnasium space to a neighborhood in need of more recreation space.
