More new development is slowly but surely taking shape in East New York, with residences like a Dattner-designed complex with 403 fully affordable apartments and a warehouse-replacing, 77-apartment building in the works. And now, a 21-building (!) affordable housing complex, spearheaded by the city and Monadnock Development, appears to be in the works.

According to the Real Deal, the expansive project is looking to rise on the site located at 389-516 Schroeders Avenue, 1111-1123 Ashford Street, and 127-129 Gateway Drive. Many of the buildings will neighbor the modular single-family homes that were recently constructed as part of the Nehemiah Spring Creek project near The Gateway Center.

The project would bring 240 affordable homes across 20 four-story buildings and one 11-story building. So far, the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development has filed plans for only 11 of those buildings but if things go as planned, the complex will consists of three studios, 98 one-bedrooms, 132 two-bedrooms, and seven three-bedroom apartments.
