Organizers break ground on new affordable housing building in Brownsville

Slate Property Group and RiseBoro Community Partnership are breaking ground on one of the most sustainable affordable housing buildings in Brownsville.
The Brooklyn building has been designed as an all-electric passive house that uses zero fossil fuel for heating and operations.
Organizers say the building will be 100% affordable with 216 new homes, including units serving formerly homeless young adults and families.
