In a progressive development agreement, MHANY is working with the Baptist Church of the Redeemer to develop 76 units of supportive housing and a 14,700sf church. Dating back to the 1920’s, the existing brick masonry sanctuary structure is in poor condition and has not been used by the congregation for many years. The new structure will provide much-needed supportive housing to seniors and formerly homeless women and families. The two uses will be separate with autonomous entries and building systems. The church will have a sky-lit sanctuary, offices and classrooms on the first floor as well as a large dining room and additional classrooms in the Cellar. The housing portion of the building will have support and activity spaces on the lower levels and a laundry room and two roof terraces on the upper levels. The highly-energy efficient building design complies with Enterprise Green Communities. Supportive housing services will be provided by Turning Point and Brooklyn Community Services which facilitate educational, career training, and physical activities for the multi-generational residents. To incorporate the rich history of the Church, re-claimed elements of the church such as the pews and select stained glass elements have been included in the new design.
