Yet another vacant lot in Brooklyn’s farther reaches is falling to Mayor de Blasio’s affordable housing push. A neighborhood “eyesore” in Brownsville will see new life as a four-story, 15-unit affordable condo complex.

The $5.8 million project, located 202 Mother Gaston Boulevard, is being overseen by Habitat for Humanity, which broke ground on the building Wednesday, according to Curbed.

When completed, two-bedroom units will be reserved for first-time buyers with individual salaries of $29,400 to $47,000, or family incomes of $41,950 to $67,100.

The site was one of the first to be approved under Mayor de Blasio’s plan to build or maintain 200,000 affordable units, according to Curbed. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
