A new mixed-use development with 100 percent affordable senior housing will be built at 31-07 31st Street in Astoria, Queens. Development team HANAC and Mega Development were chosen by the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development to bring 135 affordable senior homes, a community center, and commercial space to the city-owned site. The proposal is part of HPD’s Seniors First initiative, with a goal to serve 30,000 senior households by 2026.

Formerly homeless seniors will be allocated 30 percent of the residences as well as social services. A stand-alone community center will offer services ranging from technology training to substance abuse support and counseling for LGBTQ seniors.

“This Administration has made meeting the needs of our city’s seniors a top priority in advancing our ambitious affordable housing plan,” said HPD Commissioner Louise Carroll. “This project promises to transform this City-owned site into a thriving, affordable community for aging New Yorkers and a hub of activity for the neighborhood. I want to thank HANAC and Mega Development for their incredible work on such a dynamic development plan.”

Additional components in the SLCE-designed structure include a backyard and a recreational rooftop terrace. 31-07 31st Street will also have ground-floor retail space.

An estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. Wat do I need how much money??

  2. Windows about 15 feet away from N and Q elevated train tracks. Good thing it’s for older folks they prolly won’t hear those trains anyway. Also what a shocker that they will replace a public parking lot with apartments. NYC has too much affordable parking space.

  3. I would like to have an application for the senior home
