Bedford Courts LLC
Through the City's RFP process, Bedford Courts LLC, was selected to develop the Bedford Union Armory site. Under a long-term ground lease from the City, the partnership will bring nearly 200 units of affordable housing, a multi-sport recreational facility, community event space, office space and commercial space to Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The recreational facility will feature multi-purpose courts, a swimming pool and an indoor turf field. CAMBA, a Brooklyn-based non-profit organization, will operate and provide associated programming for the recreational facility and community event space. Planned in close coordination with community and local elected officials, Bedford Courts will activate the vacant building, which was built in 1903.
