The Domenech Location

1505 St Marks Ave, Brooklyn, NY View Map Down arrow

The Domenech is Breaking Ground’s first residence designed specifically for low-income seniors, many of whom have a history of chronic homelessness. Located in Brownsville, Brooklyn, the seven-story building contains a mix of one-bedroom and studio apartments.

The building is named in honor of Irving Domenech, a local resident and dedicated community activist who was a 19-year veteran of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. Mr. Domenech was also a member of East Brooklyn Congregations, a local partner in the project, and was instrumental in organizing local support for the building.

Breaking Ground coordinates on-site social services to assist residents in connecting with community resources, advocating for entitlements, and coordinating home care and medical services. Activities and support groups are also available.

The building was designed by celebrated architect Jonathan Kirschenfeld.
