The Stone House
The Stone House is a 161-unit building under development by WIN. Located on Junius Street between Liberty and Glenmore Avenues in East New York, Brooklyn, the lot is currently occupied by an abandoned storefront church and a parking lot. Adjacent to the north are two shelters run by WIN, creating a campus of WIN buildings in East New York. The building went through several height and mass iterations in order to obtain the required zoning variances to meet Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) approval, culminating in the current scheme, which accommodates a six-story building with a 7,000 sf side yard and commercial space at the ground floor. There will be low-income and affordable studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with laundry and exercise facilities in the cellar. Community rooms and support services for the tenants and community residents and 24 parking spaces are provided. Much needed housing, soil remediation for the site, more green space, a revitalized empty lot, and dozens of street trees are among the benefits that this building will bring to the neighborhood.
