YONKERS MARKS OPENING OF AFFORDABLE APARTMENTS ON SITE OF FORMER MULFORD GARDENS
Yonkers celebrated the ribbon cutting for Grant Park at Croton Heights and Park Terrace at Croton Heights - two apartment communities recently built to revitalize the historic Mulford Gardens Public Housing Complex and the Ashburton Avenue corridor.
"This is a new day and a new way of living in a place that once was the location of the oldest housing complexes in the country," said Mayor Spano. "People will be proud to say this is their neighborhood and these are their homes."
Located at 110 Ashburton Avenue, the four-story Park Terrace at Croton Heights contains 49 one bedroom apartments for Yonkers seniors with incomes no higher than 50% of the area median income. The building features underground parking, elevator access, a community room, computer center, and on-site laundry. Park Terrace has attained LEED Gold (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and Energy Star Certifications. This comes with great efforts from the development, design and construction teams by incorporating a range of green building strategies for sustainability, energy use, lighting, water, materials and air quality. Residents benefit from eco -friendly surroundings and reduced energy costs.
The adjacent Grant Park at Croton Heights offers 100 one, two and three bedroom apartments spread across four buildings. Grant Park residents can earn up to 60% of the area median income. The apartment complex includes a community clubhouse, fitness center, computer center, and on-site management office.
Grant Park is the first phase of a planned 240 unit affordable housing community on the former Mulford Gardens site.
