Hester Street (HST) is working with IMPACCT Brooklyn to plan for Myrtle Commons, a proposed 70-unit mixed-income and mixed use rental building with a community facility for possible workshops, a storefront retail and a permanent community garden along Myrtle Avenue. Located in a rapidly gentrifying part of Bedford-Stuyvesant with little green space, HST is working to create community engagement tools and facilitate charrettes to get the community involved in the design of the housing, retail and public spaces of the Myrtle Commons development.
