Project Description

This Passive House certified and affordable housing development called Dekalb Commons is currently in schematic design. When complete, it will bring two 7-story buildings and one 4-story building to Bedford Stuyvesant’s Dekalb Avenue, on the same block as Kosciuszko Pool. The 85-unit project aims to provide new housing options for local residents who are being displaced due to rising rents. Along with affordability, it will offer a safe community space on Dekalb Avenue, retail space, and a rear yard with a children’s play area.
