Brownsville to see more affordable housing after $118 million investment

Brownsville will be welcoming an $118 million development that plans to bring more affordable housing units to the neighborhood.
The new development, called Bridge Rockaway, is part of Gov. Kathy Hochul’s plans to make housing more affordable, equitable and stable. The new state budget included a $25 billion, five-year housing plan that will increase housing supply by either creating or preserving affordable homes across the state.
Developers of Bride Rockaway say the housing will be reserved for seniors and veterans experiencing homeless while bringing 35 new jobs to the community.
There will be two residential towers separated by an 11,000-square-foot garden, with over 100 total units in this new infrastructure. The plan is to have this development take no more than two years.
