Revealed: Prospect Plaza

Renderings are up for a new affordable housing development in Brooklyn’s Brownsville neighborhood, which has been dubbed Prospect Plaza; a press release from January of last year gives an overview of the planned scope. NYCHA and HPD selected Blue Sea Development Company to build the site, and Dattner — which is the firm behind the new images — is the architect of record.

Prospect Plaza presents an opportunity for small-scale revitalization, though the project’s relatively low density is somewhat underwhelming. Still, the new buildings will replace already-demolished public housing, and the urban-friendly concept is a marked improvement over the site’s former design.
