A plan to transform Brooklyn’s Bedford-Union Armory into a rec center and hundreds of apartments got final approval from the City Council Thursday.
The controversial Crown Heights project has sparked protests and a day before the vote, the Legal Aid Society filed a lawsuit attempting to stop it.
Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo struck a deal to make major changes to the project — scrapping plans for condos, and lowering the rents for apartments designated as affordable housing.
There will now be 400 apartments on the city-owned site, 250 of them with income limits and rent ranging from about $521 to $1,166.
Today the New York City Council voted to approve a controversial redevelopment plan for Brooklyn’s Bedford-Union Armory.
The plan, Bedford Courts, proposes revamping the vacant, city-owned armory with a 67,000-square-foot recreation hall, 330 rental apartments and 60 condominiums. The recreational facilities would include multi-purpose courts, a swimming pool, and an indoor turf field.The project still must be approved by the Mayor’s Office before it can begin development.
