Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced plans for Clarkson Estates, the latest winning proposal under the $1.4-billion Vital Brooklyn initiative, which will construct 291 affordable and supportive apartments in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. CAMBA Housing Ventures will construct the project, the second to be announced in the Vital Brooklyn program this month.
Clarkson Estates will include a 30,000-square-foot onsite community center, known as the HUB, where many of the facilities will be open to the public.
“As the pandemic creates significant hardships for New Yorkers, it’s more important than ever that we expand access to safe, affordable housing during these difficult times,” Cuomo said.
The newly announced project is part of the governor’s initiative to add 4,000 affordable homes in central Brooklyn. Cuomo announced a 322-unit project to be built in East Flatbush, Utica Crescent, last week.
Previous projects under the initiative were announced in November 2018, December 2019 and January 2020.
