Current Projects

Twin Parks Terrace

373 East 183rd Street, Bronx

Units: 182

Our next new construction project is 182 units of affordable housing being built on a NYC Housing Authority site in the Fordham Heights section of the Bronx. This development will provide affordable apartments to low- and moderate-income households earning at or below 80% of area median income and has an additional set aside of units for formerly homeless individuals and families. Scheduled to open in 2023, the property will also contain space for community services, recreation and a commercial tenant.

Apartments will be listed on NYC Housing Connect when available.

Harlem River Preservation

2850 Frederick Douglas Boulevard, Manhattan

Units: 693

Settlement Housing Fund was selected by the New York City Housing Authority, along with community-based partner, West Harlem Group Assistance, to lead the rehabilitation of eight buildings and 693 apartments, and provide resident services at Harlem River Houses and Harlem River II. The first nonprofit to lead a Permanently Affordable Commitment Together (PACT) project, Harlem River Preservation is harnessing public and private funding to bring significant upgrades to the buildings, apartments and grounds for nearly 1,400 residents. Residents will continue to pay 30% of their income toward rent. NYCHA will remain the owner of the buildings and grounds, and the project team will provide property management and social services in addition to leading the construction process.

Future vacancies will be filled by the NYCHA waitlist.

Weeksville Place

1559-61-63 Prospect Place, Brooklyn

Units: 45

Weeksville Place will be an eight-story building comprising 45 residential units (inclusive of one superintendent’s unit) for seniors, families, individuals, and households formerly experiencing homelessness. The project is located near to our other Brooklyn properties in Crown Heights.

Apartments will be listed on NYC Housing Connect when available.

Former Cluster Site Housing

Mount Eden & Fordham Heights

Units: 415

Settlement Housing was selected by the City in 2019 and again in 2021 to assume responsibility of eight buildings in the Bronx that were being used as temporary ‘cluster sites’ for homeless families. These properties were neglected and costing the City substantial fees to be used as transitional housing with limited services to help households secure permanent housing. Settlement Housing provides Resident Engagement Services to the tenants to help them stay stably housed and will begin the rehabilitation of the properties in 2022.

Apartments will listed on the general Wavecrest vacancy list when available.

St. John’s Place Family Center

1604, 1620 & 1630 St. Johns Place, Brooklyn

Units: 102

Settlement Housing Fund will be rehabilitating the St. John’s Place Family Center, which we established in 1990 to provide an alternative to welfare hotels. Located in Crown Heights, the renovated Center will be operated by URI NYC to provide transitional housing and other services to 102 families at a time, assisting them in their search for employment and affordable housing.
