Marcus Garvey Extension – Building F

L+M Development Partners LLC; New York


Building F at the Marcus Garvey Extension development is an integrated affordable and supportive housing development and its first to provide supportive housing and services to people over 50 who are re-entering the community from incarceration. It is located in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, and it was recognized for its outstanding benefit to the local neighborhood and quality of support services. The project team included L+M Development Partners LLC, L+M Builders Group LLC, Roux, and the Osborne Association.

Roux services included design and implementation of a remedial investigation under the New York City Office of Environmental Remediation (NYCOER) E-designation program, design and implementation of a remedial action plan, in situ soil characterization sampling and soil removal, and underground storage tank (UST) removal adhering to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) regulations. A NYCOER notice of satisfaction was obtained for the Site in 2022.

The project is a model for a socially responsible, community-based development that extends beyond housing to provide support to residents within the Brownsville community. This underutilized former commercial property underwent remediation to prepare for the new eight-story residential building that includes 174 affordable apartments, 52 of which are reserved for supportive housing. The Osborne Association operates an office on the ground floor where they provide workforce development programs, relationship coaching, health literacy education, cognitive behavioral therapy groups, and other services.

The 2023 Big Apple Brownfield Award for Community Space and Support Services was presented to the Marcus Garvey Extension – Building F development by the New York City Brownfield Partnership.
