Of the 44 affordable apartment, 50% have been set aside for residents of  Brooklyn Community Board 3 residents.

On top of the condos and rentals, the complex will also include more than 67,000 square feet of community and retail space, where residents will have access to a rooftop terrace, bike storage and a shared laundry room.
