Victory Plaza has officially opened in Central Harlem. The nine-story, 136-unit development with 100 percent affordable housing for seniors is located at 11 West 118th Street. Developed by Camber Property Group in partnership with Harlem Congregations for Community Improvement (HCCI), the New York City Department of Housing Preservation & Development, and the New York City Housing Development Corporation, the building is designed by Aufgang Architects.

“A truly equitable city requires us to build dignified, permanent homes for all New Yorkers, including our most vulnerable,” said Rick Gropper, principal and co-founder of Camber Property Group.

Victory Plaza will have 81 units set aside for low-income seniors and 55 homes for formerly homeless seniors. Amenities include a landscaped outdoor recreation area, fitness center, programmed community space, shared laundry room, and bicycle storage. Residents will also have access to on-site social services ranging from health and wellbeing to financial security and isolation prevention, provided by HCCI.

“The opening of Victory Plaza represents our commitment to housing our most vulnerable New Yorkers,” said Eric Enderlin, NYC Housing Development Corporation president. “This development will benefit the Central Harlem community for generations to come, with more than 130 homes for low-income and formerly homeless seniors, more than a third of which are permanently affordable. Thank you to all our partners for their dedication to bringing this vital project to completion during these challenging times.”

Funding for the $65 million project came from the Housing Development Corporation and Department of Housing Preservation & Development, as well as Wells Fargo.
