The New York City Brownfield Partnership recently announced its 2012 Big Apple Brownfield Awards (BABA). For the second year in a row, one of our affordable housing clients has won an award. We helped Exact Capital gain entry into the New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program so that it could build an affordable housing project-Crotona Apartments- on a former gas station site. This award was especially meaninful to me because both of my parents grew up across the street from Crotona Park.
Last year, another client won an BABA award for the La Terraza project that was built on a former dry cleaner site in the Bronx. Here is a link containing information about that project:2011 BABA Awards
