The PACT (Permanent Affordability Commitment Together) Brooklyn Bundle project is led by Brooklyn Housing Preservation Experience, a joint venture between The Arker Companies, Omni New York LLC, Dabar Development Partners, and Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation.

Through NYCHA’s PACT program, more than 6,300 residents in these developments will benefit from comprehensive upgrades to 2,625 apartments and common areas, including vital improvements to elevators, security, and heating systems as well as other needs identified by resident association leaders in each development.

Restoration connects community members and NYCHA residents to jobs on the PACT Brooklyn Bundle, including prevailing wage construction jobs.
