Broadview, from Pearl to Valley
From The Master Plan - Old Brooklyn Community Development Corporation
Broadview Road is one of the main arterials in the Old Brooklyn neighborhood, connecting the eastern side of the neighborhood to the Old Brooklyn Downtown area. This area extends from the primary retail node created by Broadview’s intersection with Pearl Road southeasterly to Valley Road. This section of Broadview Road is characterized by a mix of uses including small offices, commercial, and residential. This area is characterized by a mix of uses, and is not dominated by retail buildings located close to the street.
New retail construction
New retail construction in these areas should not occur at the expense of redevelopment/rehab in the core area due to need to strengthen the core first.
- Encourage a mix of retail/office buildings and multifamily uses in the areas between the primary retail node and Valley Road.
- Buildings could include offices or residential above street level retail.
- If residential-only buildings are developed, buildings should be situated close to street, same as for retail.
Redevelop parcels with structures that are in poor condition or that do not architecturally contribute to the area instead of rehabilitating the structures.
