Urban Quotient

East New York Development Study


Affordable housing developers Omni NY have engaged Urban Quotient to study development options for a large site they own in East New York. Borrowing from the NextGen NYCHA plan, Omni is looking at using underutilized land currently dedicated to parking to build new affordable units. The study includes analysis of various zoning scenarios, schematic site plans, and building schematics. The project would enter ULURP in 2018 with the goal of entering the 2019 funding pipeline.
