Greenburgh Housing Authority Proposes To Modernize Senior Housing

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Thirty units of senior housing might soon be replaced with 82 affordable senior citizen apartments on Manhattan Avenue in Greenburgh if a proposal by the Greenburgh Housing Authority is approved.

The authority told members of the Town Board recently that the current housing is more than 40 years old, and poorly constructed, said Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner.

In addition, the housing needs infrastructure repairs and improvements as they do not meet the current code and don't have many of the resources, amenities and accessibility features that are commonplace in senior developments today, authority officials said.

Currently, there is a long waiting list to get into Greenburgh housing. According to the authority officials, when they opened up the application process, 500 applicants applied in six hours.

The authority's proposal would be to replace 30 units of senior housing with 82 units in a modern three-story facility that would include much larger units, a community room, fitness center and outdoor gardens, Feiner said.

The authority pointed out that unincorporated Greenburgh is one of the very few towns, villages and cities in Westchester that was not ordered by the U.S. Justice Department to build more affordable housing units.
