Located along Atlantic Avenue between Logan Street and Fountain Avenue, this 14-story, mixed-use residential project will provide 350 units of affordable housing and approximately 10,000 SF of ground floor retail/commercial space for the surrounding neighborhoods of Cypress Hills and East New York. The new building design is “U”-shaped, enclosing an 8,500 SF exterior courtyard within the building’s center. The courtyard has three main levels defined by a series of curving walls that retain planted and hardscape terraces easing the 10 feet of grade change from the lower to upper levels. A new pathway circulates at the upper level to a winding exterior staircase down to a mid-level, and a short ramp and small set of stairs connect to a lower level. Within this compact space, a variety of programming and landscape features are integrated, including a tenant community garden, a children’s play area with colorful safety surface and equipment, a mid-level terrace with a vinescreen feature wall and tables and chairs, small gathering spaces with seat walls, a lower terrace with picnic tables, decorative paving, and landscape architectural lighting components. A large sloped lawn with shade trees also offers a soft, green space for residents to lounge in the sun and a place to sit and watch children in the adjacent play area.
