Co-developed by Urban Builders Collaborative and Pratt Area Community Council, a nonprofit affordable housing organization, the DeWitt is a seven-story 16-unit condominium located in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Half of the one- and two-bedroom units including penthouse units were sold at market rates. The profits from these will go towards subsidizing the remaining eight, to be sold through a lottery system. The apartments range in size from 700 to 1,100 square feet. All residents will have access to the community rooftop space, and seven parking spaces will be available for purchase. Curtis & Ginsberg Architects designed the project with high-end luxury finishes and sustainable building systems and energy efficient appliances.
