Mayor de Blasio's Housing New York initiative to develop more affordable housing throughout the city will bring a total of 183 units for seniors and low- to moderate-income households to 1921 Atlantic Avenue in Broooklyn. Dabar Development Partners and Thorobird Real Estate are behind the project and are two of the eight Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (M/WBEs) chosen by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation & Development to bring six 100 percent affordable housing projects to Brooklyn, Bronx, and Manhattan. This first step will deliver a total of 440 affordable housing units that is expected to counter the displacement of residents as well as reduce the city's high rates of homelessness.

All the units planned in the six developments will be earmarked for seniors, the homeless, and the extremely-low income NYC households. Apart from apartments, the developments will include features like a STEM center for high schoolers, a tech center, a space for a green market and an LGBT community center.

Overall, the projects are part of NYC's goal to award 30 percent of the value of its contracts to M/WBE firms by 2021. To help reach this, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced late last year that the state would grant a $300 million increase in bonds.

1921 Atlantic Avenue is the largest of the six new affordable housing developments chosen for this initiative. The current city-owned lot in Bedford Stuyvesant is set to be developed into what appears to be two separate buildings - one 10-story facing Atlantic Avenue and another 8-story facing Prescott Place. GF55 Partners are responsible for the building's design. The 25,762 square-foot site will feature a community facility operated by NHS and Oko Farms, a company that implements aquaponics to raise freshwater fish along with vegetables and herbs. Additionally, a new fresh food grocery store will be created. Dabar Development Partners, headed by Dawanna Wiliams, are also responsible for the planned 8-story yellow brick development at 400 Lenox Avenue in Harlem.
