Fifth Avenue Committee

Red Hook Homes comprises three buildings with a total of 60 units — including 36 children. 


THE ORGANIZATION
Fifth Avenue Committee, Inc. (FAC) is a 35-year-old non-profit comprehensive community development corporation in South Brooklyn with the mission to advance economic and social justice by building vibrant, diverse communities where residents have genuine opportunities to achieve their goals and the power to shape the community’s future.

DESIGN NEED
Working with Future Green Studios, FAC hopes to create a multifunctional, safe space for residents and their families to spend time at 135 Coffey Street. Because of the neighborhood’s flood risk, plantings must be resilient and salt-water tolerant, and other requested elements include a children’s play area and communal seating.
