Just last week, we noted that TD banks had been replacing Commerce banks all over town. Well, they're planning on being good neighbors indeed. According to a press release we received, they're awarding CAMBA Housing Ventures (CHV) $100,000 for a 53-unit affordable housing development at 97 Crooke Avenue in Flatbush; McBrooklyn reported this, too. (We also learned last week that such supportive housing developments don't negatively impact surrounding property values.) On-site at the building: case management, community rooms, and a landscaped back patio and garden. Twenty of the 53 units are aimed at folks making $30,000 or less, while 32 are targeted for "formerly homeless individuals exiting the New York City Shelter system." The design firm is Dattner Architects, also responsible for the Catsimatidis project on Myrtle.
