Atlantic Terrace construction

669 Atlantic Avenue at South Portland Avenue

Fort Greene

Brooklyn, New York

 

Soon to be the home of an affordable housing development called "Atlantic Terrace".

 

From the NYC Housing Development Corporation's website:

"A new 10-story co-op with 80 low, middle and market-rate apartments will be built on the vacant lot at 669 Atlantic Avenue between South Portland Avenue and South Oxford Street, across the street from the Atlantic Yards site."

 

Unfortunately, they are not going to install solar panels as planned, as the building would be virtually in perpetual shade due to the towers of Atlantic Yards, which would be to the south (to the right in the photo), across Atlantic Avenue.
