Information about this lot
Why is this lot here?
We think this lot is vacant because:
Housing Preservation and Development is not granting interim licenses now. The only way to have the community access this lot is by getting it transferred to another agency. Look below for Pathways that will guide you.
This lot is part of the Edgemere urban renewal plan.
In the Draft Edgemere Neighborhood Plan, this is a housing site. Although construction is likely years away, Housing Preservation and Development plans to hold on to the land.
The plan includes "at least two new community gardens" but does not indicate where they will be.
They are also exploring the creation of a Community Land Trust for housing in this neighborhood and it seems that whatever is built here in the future could be included.
Hear about HPD's Draft Plan on Saturday, September 24, 11am to 2pm at the 41St Cornerstone Community Center (426 Beach 40th Street). This will be the last community workshop. The draft plan will be presented then.
