New residential construction along the L train in Brooklyn has extended from Williamsburg and Bushwick all the way to Ridgewood, Queens, where something of a housing boomlet is underway. Sure, it's no Long Island City or High Line or even Crown Heights, with their masses of apartments on the way, but the area is truly in the early stages of a transitionaway from its roots as a quaint, family-oriented neighborhood that's also a historic district lined with row houses.
But now, new renters and buyers have been priced out further west and are searching for affordable options. Enter Ridgewood, which is poised for a neighborhood-altering rezoning from manufacturing to residential. Main drags lined with staples like grocery stores and locally-run restaurants, such as Fresh Pond Road and Myrtle Avenue, plus reliable transportation in and out have made it an appealing location for developers and architects. To keep up with the changes, we've compiled a list of recently completed projects, ongoing construction, and soon-to-be residential buildings. So far there are 11, but considering the influx of changes to the area, there's bound to be more. Did we miss any new or potential developments? If so send us a tip or leave it in the comments.
