Habitat for Humanity will be building new homes in Bed-Stuy soon. If you are interested in becoming a homeowner, then you should visit the Habitat for Humanity website for information on this affordable housing opportunity.
Sixteen families will help build their future homes in these four row houses, which will include a mix of two- and three-bedroom condominiums. These developments will be located at 512, 514 and 544 Lafayette Avenue (between Bedford and Nostrand) and 118 Hart Street (between Marcy and Tompkins). The homes on the Hart site, which is currently a vacant lot, will be constructed first. These “green” buildings will include high efficiency boilers, energy-efficient, low-emissivity windows, non-toxic construction materials and many more eco-friendly alternatives. Construction begins this summer, with volunteers joining in the winter of 2010. The projected completion is spring of 2011.
