Eventhough I'm still mad at PACC (Pratt Area Community Council) for withdrawing my application for 55 Putnam Ave, 5 years ago, I think they did a great job of restoring 420 Classon Avenue, which is on the border of Bedford Stuyvesant and Clinton Hill.
PACC took three dilapidated builidings and turned them into 12 affordable condominiums. According to Brownstoner.com, the lottery has been held and the non-profit is currently checking applicants' credit records and confirming their eligibility. Hopefully PACC doesn't stifle another young man trying to attain the American dream.
The job doesn't look cheap but the prices are pretty good: Four one-bedrooms priced between $185,000 and $211,000 are available for households earning up to $73,700; four two-bedrooms priced from $258,000 to $270,000 are available for households earning up to $92,200; four two-bedrooms priced from $374,000 to $424,000 are available for households earning up to $116,900.
