Kingsboro Psychiatric Center Mixed-Use Project

ESD, in partnership with New York State Homes and Community Renewal, released a Request for Proposals in August 2020 to redevelop the western portion of the Kingsboro Psychiatric Center campus in East Flatbush.  In July 2021, ESD conditionally designated a consortium of developers and nonprofits to construct new affordable housing, open space, health-focused non-residential spaces, and shelter buildings (replacing existing shelter buildings) on the approximately 7.2 acre site.

The proposed project is part of the State of New York’s Vital Brooklyn Initiative, a comprehensive community development initiative that addresses chronic social, economic, and health disparities in Central Brooklyn. The Initiative aims to break down barriers to health and well-being through eight integrated areas of investment: open space and recreation; healthy food; education; economic empowerment; community-based violence prevention; community-based health care; affordable housing; and resiliency.

ESD is currently seeking comments from the public on the Draft Scope of Work (DSOW) for the proposed project’s Environmental Impact Statement. Additional information on the DSOW is below.
