Habitat Building More in Ocean Hill-Brownsville


    According to a press release, Habitat for Humanity held a groundbreaking yesterday for a 12-unit condo in Ocean Hill-Brownsville “targeted to low-income working New York City families earning between 50% to 80% of the city’s Area Median Income.” The condo, St. John’s Residences, “is the first of more than 100 Habitat-NYC homes to be built in Central Brooklyn, funded in part through the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development Neighborhood Stabilization Program Round 2.” An earlier project Habitat did in Brownsville led the organization to start changing its development model in New York City so that it focused more on multi-unit builds rather than single-family homes. This particular project is supposed to be finished next year.
