Harlem's Latest FHA Building; Denied by Edge's Affordable Housing

New, 21 comments

HARLEM?It looks like our last mention of The Dover, a pair of brownstone condos at 252 and 256 West 123rd Street, was a brief note on a 50% sales milestone back in January 2008. Silence at times can be a deadly thing, and units are still on the market. However, reps tell us the project is the latest to join the FHA-approved club, meaning buyers can take advantage of those sweet sweet government-insured mortgages with 3.5% down payments. We hope we're not still mentioning sponsor sales in this development come 2012. Model unit shot above. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURG?Progress on the affordable housing front at massive Williamsburg waterfront community the Edge, where renters are still wondering what the holdup is. And by progress we mean talking, which didn't go so great for our tipster: "I thought you might be interested to hear that I had an 'interview' for the low-income housing at The Edge today. Apparently I don't make enough money to qualify for low-income housing. The minimum income for single occupants in a studio is $38k, and my $29k per year doesn't cut it. Guess this pauper better go search for some no-income-housing since I can't afford low-income." Should've checked the chart! [CurbedWire Inbox]
