Banks Throw Co-Housing Project a Curveball


The design of the Brooklyn Co-Housing Group's new home may be passive, but their bankers certainly aren't. According to an email that went out to the 600 or people who've expressed some kind of interest in being a part of the cooperative living experiment, the lender has just upped the percentage of the project that must be presold from 51 to 75. "We are not daunted – we will just have to grow faster than previously anticipated," said Rick, Nancy, Miriam, Victor, Rob, Joel, Sue, Brian, Trish, Elvira, Ed, Merce, Kim, Jasper, Carl, Elsie, Lissa, Gracie, JoAnn, Tiger, Caden, Ken, Hilary, Marina, Marion, Max, Kristi and Alex. In other news, the first 16 families have already picked out their apartments in the complex at 1901 8th Avenue in Windsor Terrace. If you think you might be interested, there's an orientation session this Saturday at the Memorial Baptist Church on 16th Street at 8th Avenue at 2 p.m.
