Construction Loan Closes for Brownsville Affordable Development

Slate Property Group, an owner, operator and developer of residential and commercial real estate in the New York metropolitan area, and nonprofit developer and service provider RiseBoro Community Partnership closed on a construction loan for 326 Rockaway Ave., a 185,000-square-foot development in Brooklyn’s Brownsville neighborhood. Loan terms weren’t disclosed. 

Of the 215 new affordable homes at 326 Rockaway Ave., 60% will be dedicated to supportive housing for young adults and young adult families. The remaining 40% is reserved for families earning below 60% of the Area Median Income. 

The project was financed through a combination of Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, tax-exempt bonds, and subsidies with support from the New York City Housing Development Corporation, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, and Goldman Sachs Asset Management. The new homes at 326 Rockaway are also made possible through an acquisition loan from the Corporation for Supportive Housing.
