New, 3 comments

LONG ISLAND CITY?Listen people, we've been following the saga of The Breadbox Café?LIC's rolling-pin-lined facade slapped onto an old gas station?since 2009. Did you really think we would let the occasion of the completion of said facade go unmentioned? King"pin" LIC broker Eric Benaim sends along the evidence. We're not sure what to say about such a monumental event, so, uh, bagels on us! (Not really.) [CurbedWire Inbox]

FORT GREENE?Some more details on the big Navy Green project near the Brooklyn Navy Yard, which had a groundbreaking ceremony today. The 458 units will be spread over four buildings and 23 townhomes, and 77% of the units will be for families earning 30% to 130% of the Area Median Income, which maxes out at $103,000 for a family of four, or $72,150 for single-person households. Today's groundbreaking kicked off the first two phases, an 8-story, 101-unit rental on Clermont Avenue near Park Avenue, and an 8-story, 96-unit supportive housing building on Vanderbilt Avenue.
