Sunset Park, located at 372 51st street, Brooklyn NY is an innovative 8-story building with 50-units of affordable housing developed in conjunction with the expansion of the Brooklyn Public Library’s branch.
Energy costs for the building will be reduced as a result of the installation of eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators as well as roof top solar panels.
All of the units are for low- and extremely low-income residents, earning between 30% and 80% of AMI. Eight of the units will have a Section 8 subsidy.Total development costs for the project are $37.4 million. This project is part of a groundbreaking partnership between Fifth Avenue Committee, Inc. (FAC) and the Brooklyn Public Library, along with the State and the City of New York.
Fifth Avenue Committee, Inc. (FAC) is a community organization in South Brooklyn that advances economic and social justice by building vibrant, diverse communities where residents have genuine opportunities to achieve their goals, as well as the power to shape the community’s future. FAC is a nationally-recognized nonprofit comprehensive community development corporation. Formed in 1978, FAC works to transform the lives of low- and moderate-income New Yorkers so that all can all live and work with dignity and respect while making community more equitable, sustainable, inclusive, and just.
The Sunset Park building is being constructed through the Extremely Low and Low Income Affordability Program (ELLA) and the Inclusionary Housing Program of the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development and the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program (LIHTC) by the New York State Homes and Community Renewal .
Galaxy General Contracting constructed the building, Magnusson Architecture and Planning, PC served as architect, with additional design work focused on the public library portion provided by Mitchell Giurgola Architects LLP. Sustainability Consultant for the project is Steven Winter Associates, Inc. MEP Engineer is Johnson & Urban LLC Installation of eFlow-CARs was undertaken by RSI Remediation Specialists Inc.
eFlow-CAR is a simple solution to balancing ventilation systems. Constant Airflow Regulator is a device that automatically regulates airflows in ventilation systems to constant levels. The passive control element responds to duct pressure, and requires no electric sensors, pneumatic sensors or controls. eFlow-CARs promote high indoor air quality and energy savings.
