277 Gates Avenue in South Clinton Hill, Brooklyn is a 35-unit apartment building constructed circa 1910 in the Beaux Arts style. The Pratt Area Community Council purchased it from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, which had vacated the property’s 35 very deteriorated units. As part of the building’s rehabilitation, Pratt replaced decorative pressed metal fascia on the parapet with the use of a CVF grant of $40,000.
