The development craze continues in East New York .

A developer is looking to build a mixed commercial and residential building in the neighborhood with hundreds of new apartments, including some that will rent for below market rate, according to permits filed with the city.

Radson Development, a firm based on Long Island, filed plans Friday for 2858 Linden Boulevard between Emerald and Amber streets, which will include 235 apartments and more than 17,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, records show.

The building will come equipped with bike storage, a second-floor terrace and playground, three recreation rooms, an eighth-floor terrace and green roof, and a parking area with 36 spots, according to the permit application filed with the Department of Buildings.

The project, which will rise on what is currently a vacant lot several blocks away from the Queens border, will include affordable units under the city’s inclusionary housing policy, according to public records. Details about the number of below-market units and what income bracket they will be geared toward were not immediately available.

    Below market for who when the income bracket is set too high you still need at least two to three families to pay the rent and utilities. What is affordable to who seems to me it not for those who live in the community and how is these guide lines is set again. AFFORDABLE FOR WHO

    Understanding how these guidelines for affordable housing are set require being in on planning. . Since to many of us don’t value the vote, therefore they don’t attend these meetings either. You cannot change things being uninformed. .

    I look forward to some more affordable housing in the area. I currently reside a few blocks from the location with my family and work for the city and I’m looking to branch out and would love to stay in the area. Hopefully my income will be included in those guidelines. Thanks. So looking forward to this project

    Wow. I’m anticipating this space with apartments. It has been vacant for over 15 years. The income ranges can be unreasonable at times with affordable apartments. I’m single and although I’m not against sharing space. It doesn’t make sense for 3 people to live in a two bedroom apartment? I know I’m not alone. Our district people could have got together and purchased all the lots. That’s a shame that Long Island will represent this space.
