Affordable Housing Grows In Brooklyn

Housing developer Breaking Ground has converted a former Jehovah’s Witness building into affordable housing in DUMBO section of Brooklyn.

Of the 491 units in the apartment complex, 185 are affordable housing now and 246 will remain affordable in perpetuity.

Building on a long-standing partnership between Breaking Ground and The Center for Urban Community Services, the latter will provide social services to residents of 90 Sands. This marks the 12th building at which the two have collaborated to provide housing and support for formerly homeless people and families. Among services CUCS will provide residents are case management, primary medical care, mental health services, employment readiness and benefits counseling.
