NEW YORK CITY — Catholic Charities of Brooklyn & Queens has opened the doors on Pope Francis Apartments of Loreto, a 135-unit affordable seniors housing community in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn. Designed by RKTB Architects, the development replaces a former Catholic church that closed in 2009.  The new residence meets Enterprise Green Communities Criteria, a comprehensive green building framework specifically for affordable housing. The design and development team previously completed the adjacent Monsignor Anthony J. Baretta Apartments, which is considered Phase I of a larger set of redevelopment plans.
