Governor Andrew Cuomo recently celebrated the groundbreaking of a new affordable housing complex for seniors in the village of Nanuet in Rockland County. Known as Vincent’s Village, the development will include 93 residences spread across three individual buildings.
“Affordable and supportive senior housing is critical to reducing homelessness in communities across the State,” Governor Cuomo said. “These homes for seniors will deliver on-site services to residents, ensuring safe and healthy homes and enhancing the quality of life for some of our most vulnerable New Yorkers.”
The apartments at Vincent’s Village will be marketed as rental units for senior households at or below 60 percent of the area’s median income. Available units will include a mix of 81 one-bedroom apartments and 12 two-bedroom apartments. About 40 percent of those apartments will be set aside for “frail elderly households.”
On-site amenities will include a fitness room, a computer room, and support services including health monitoring, care coordination and case management, counseling, and social activities.
“Vincent’s Village will provide Rockland County with desperately needed affordable senior housing,” said New York State Assemblyman Kenneth Zebrowski. “Our senior citizens who helped in building Rockland into the community it is today should be able to continue living here and Vincent’s Village will help in providing that opportunity.”
The project team includes The Sisters of Charity Housing Development, a local non-profit organization, and Rockabill Development, a for-profit entity that specifically partners with non-profits on the development of affordable housing projects.
