JJ Bistricer, executive vice president of Clipper Equity, developer of BellTel Lofts, has announced that the lofts have received Federal Housing Administration approval, making it perhaps the first luxury condominium in Downtown Brooklyn to be approved by the FHA. “With FHA support, buyers can put as little as $17,000 down on a unit,” said Ilan Bracha, managing director of the Bracha Group at Prudential Douglas Elliman, and the project’s exclusive broker. The promotion runs until Labor Day. In addition, all BellTel Lofts homeowners benefit from J-51 tax abatements. The 250-unit development is currently 55 percent sold out.
