The affordable housing lottery has launched for 145 West 108th Street, an 11-story community facility building on the Upper West Side, Manhattan. The 191,963-square-foot development was designed by Dattner Architects and developed by the West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing, and yields 198 affordable housing units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are 79 units for residents at 30 to 60 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $18,480 to $88,800.
145 West 108th Street
Construction is nearing completion on 145 West 108th Street, an 11-story mixed-use building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by Dattner Architects and developed by the West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing, the nearly 200,000-square-foot project will yield 199 units for both low-income families and seniors, and an upcoming Valley Lodge facility serving 110 seniors. The property will also include 160,453 square feet of community facility space, a new home for the Central Park Medical Unit, and public restrooms for Anibal Aviles Playground directly adjacent to the east of the structure. A second phase to the east near the end of the block will bring an additional 81 senior living spaces.
The Upper West Side doesn’t often see major new residential developments, especially of the affordable variety, which is why HPD’s plans for 145 West 108th Street, on behalf of the West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing, are somewhat surprising. Dattner Architects will be designing, and today, YIMBY has the first images of what the two-building project will look like.
