The six buildings in the first phase are located in the Bed-Stuy and Crown Heights neighborhoods of Brooklyn. Work scope on this phase included new windows, masonry re-pointing and preservation, new roofing, and renovated interiors.

BEC Phase II is made up of 24 buildings in various locations of Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights and other neighborhoods in Brooklyn. The 24 buildings in phase II include a total of 124 Affordable Residential units. The exterior scope of Phase II is similar to the work of Phase I, with replacement of windows, roof, and re-pointing of masonry. The interior scope is more enhanced and includes full renovation kitchens and bathrooms, as well as upgrades to mechanical systems. Phase II is scheduled for completion in early 2019.
