Washington Heights Will Gain 72 Affordable Studios

New, 1 comment

Nonprofit developer the Lantern Organization (nee Group) will be bringing 72 studio apartments to Washington Heights. Of the apartments, 70-percent will be devoted to formerly homeless single adults with the remainder allotted for single adults, preferably living within Community Board 12, who make 60-percent of the Department of Housing and Urban Development's income limits. YIMBY first spotted the new permits for the seven-story, 72-studio building with a one-bedroom landlord's apartment coming to 444 West 163rd Street. The Lantern Group's website claims the "community facility," dubbed Savanna Hall, will provide "on-site supportive service for all tenants" that aim to "keep tenants stabilized through case management organized around social and economic stability, health and wellness management, and independent living." The architect of record is Urban Architectural Initiatives.
