NEW YORK CITY—Modular homes are sometimes referred to as “manufactured” instead of “constructed.” Now, New York City is funding a modular affordable housing project at 581 Grant Ave. in East New York, Brooklyn. The development will be one of the first in the state to use the method of stacking factory-produced apartment units to lower construction costs and increase efficiency. The city estimates this will reduce construction time 25% to 30%.
