The Associated Press is reporting that Mo Vaughn is purchasing and renovating two Bronx apartment buildings to provide low-income housing.
Vaughn, whose business acumen was previously shown with his batting-cage complex, summer camp collaboration with Nomar, and of course, being paid tens of millions of dollars by the Anaheim Angels and New York Mets, will receive a $28.6 million loan from NYC’s Housing Development Corp. This is of course, a good thing, as the less fortunate deserve all of the creature comforts Mo Vaughn would take for granted.
The apartments will get new floors, kitchen cabinets, tiles, bathtubs, toilets, boilers and water heaters. They also will receive improvements in electricity and plumbing. Security cameras will be installed.
No mention yet if a Scores franchise will open on site.
