Bergen Street rezoning will bring 225 affordable apartments, new grocery store to Boerum Hill


A formerly-industrial Boerum Hill lot will soon be home to 450 new apartments – with 225 affordable units and a new grocery store — after the City Council voted nearly-unanimously on Wednesday to approve a rezoning.

The Bergen Street lot, which sits between Nevins Street and Third Avenue, fills nearly a full city block and used to be occupied by a screen-printing manufacturer and parking lots. Four new residential and mixed-use buildings will be constructed on the lot — with one entire building reserved for seniors and the other for mostly low-income families.
