Bridge Rockaway, an unusual kind of mixed-use affordable housing development is in the works in Brownsville, bringing 174 affordable apartments and nearly 40,0000 square feet of light manufacturing space to the neighborhood.

The $118 million project, part of Gov. Kathy Hochul’s plan for housing reform, will include 87 permanent supportive housing units for formerly and chronically homeless New Yorkers, and, when finished, is expected to create 35 new industrial jobs and 2o jobs in the residential portion of the building.
