FHA-approved building opening in Williamsburg
Aptsandlofts.com has announced the opening of 229 North 8th Street, perhaps the first condominium in the northern part of Williamsburg to be FHA-approved. The seven-story building has 54 units that range from 670-square-foot one-bedrooms starting at $425,000 to 1,150-square-foot two-bedrooms, priced at $659,000. The building has also received a final certificate of occupancy, meaning buyers are able to close and move in within four months. Apartments at 229 North 8th Street are available for purchase with a 3.5 percent down payment, which amounts to as little as $14,875 upfront.

Ribbon cut at green Bed-Stuy building

The five-story co-op, called Gates Cooperative, is located at 566 Gates Avenue between Tompkins and Throop avenues. The green building has four two-bedroom units and 10 one-bedroom apartments available for low- and moderate-income households, with prices ranging from $87,000 to $167,000. The project was funded by various government agencies. TRD
