Construction Moving Forward at 575 Fifth Avenue in Park Slope

Amie Gross Architects’ 49-unit, LEED Platinum hopeful 575 Fifth Avenue project in Park Slope is underway and on track for an early 2010 occupancy.

Earlier this week, Brownstoner’s Development Watch checked in with Amie Gross Architects’ LEED Platinum hopeful 575 Fifth Avenue project in Park Slope. The 49-unit affordable housing development broke ground last August and is now two stories out of the ground; developer Fifth Avenue Committee expects an early 2010 occupancy.

As we noted previously, the 5-story, $8 million project includes, among other green features, an efficient, gas-powered HVAC system and recycled-content structural materials. The development is at the corner of 5th Avenue and 16th Street and sits on the site of a former muncipal parking garage. Steven Winter Associates is the project’s LEED consultant.
