As reported in Bowery Boogie, construction progress is visible at 55 Suffolk Street, the site of the first phase of a new affordable housing complex. When completed, the 30-story building will be part of a development by the Gotham Organization and the Chinese-American Planning Council that will bring 493 apartments, 209 of which will be earmarked for affordable housing, to the neighborhood. The development will also include commercial, retail, and community facilities, including a commercial condo for Beth Hamedrash Hagodol, whose landmark home sited at 55 Suffolk Street was destroyed by an arsonist in 2017.
