Construction Projects Continue on Myrtle Avenue

Tue, May 23rd, 2017

Like much of Brooklyn, Myrtle Avenue in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill is seeing many new buildings under construction. With almost a dozen construction projects underway or planned, it’s easy to loose track of what is being built where. To help keep it all straight, we’ve put together a recap of all the local projects.

Along Myrtle Avenue in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill, there are 11 new construction projects currently under construction or planned.  Combined, these projects will add 978 new housing units and 52,000 square feet of new ground-floor commercial space.

Room for Local Business Growth

The new buildings rising on Myrtle Avenue will bring many new storefronts and opportunities for the commercial district to serve the daily needs of local residents.  In total, these 11 buildings will add up to 26 new storefronts, growing Myrtle Avenue’s commercial footprint by 13%.

“In conversations with property owners and brokers of these new spaces, we’ve advocated for businesses that are most in demand by local residents.  Our recent consumer surveys and a district retail assessment found opportunity in sectors like specialty food shops (butchers and ice cream), family clothing, boutique retailers, and services like gyms and urgent care, so we’ve focused our business attraction efforts in these categories.”- Meredith Phillips Almeida, Executive Director, Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership
