Habitat for Humanity NYC, a charitable organization that rehabilitates deteriorated housing and builds new homes for the benefit of low- and moderate-income New Yorkers, has completed its Dean Street Residences at 203 Mother Gaston Blvd. in Brownsville. The nonprofit group celebrated the milestone in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sept. 22, according to New York YIMBY.

Apartments in the 15-unit building will be available to individuals and households earning 50 to 80 percent of New York City’s average median income, New York YIMBY reported. The owners must be first-time homebuyers and must be willing to contribute a minimum of 250 hours in “sweat equity,” which can include construction work within the development, cleaning up the site, assisting in administrative duties or working in a Habitat-sponsored home improvement store.
