Yonkers today celebrated the groundbreaking for Grant Park II, which will add 56 new units of affordable housing on the site of the former Mulford Gardens in the Ashburton Avenue corridor.
Grant Park II is the fourth phase of the redevelopment of the public housing complex, and consists of two four-story buildings that will contain a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments. They are being made available to individuals and households earning at or below 60 percent of the Area Median Income.
“This is the latest phase of transforming the deteriorated Mulford Gardens into modern and desirable homes for the people of Yonkers,” said Mayor Mike Spano, “We’re not just providing better homes for people who need them, but we’re providing a better neighborhood, and that helps the entire city. This is another step forward for the City of Yonkers.”
Grant Park II is a public-private partnership led by the Richman Group Development Corporation, the Landex Companies, the Municipal Housing Authority of the City of Yonkers, New York State Homes and Community Renewal, and the Yonkers Industrial Development Agency.
