Building strong neighborhoods with affordable housing and community programs


Walton Avenue Groundbreaking

Project partners NYS HCR, NYC HPD, Capital One Bank, Hudson Housing Capital, The Briarwood Organization and lead philanthropic partner, JPMorganChase & Co., joined the groundbreaking ceremony for the newest residential building at New Settlement Apartments in the Mt. Eden section of the Bronx. The 60-unit energy efficient building designed by Edelman Sultan Knox Wood / Architects will be affordable to low- and moderate-income families, including 9 who are homeless, and will include outdoor space as well as ground floor space for the neighboring New Settlement College Access Center.  When the building opens in 2017, residents will be able to take advantage of the many programs that New Settlement operates for more than 15,000 people each year, including swim, dance and fitness classes at the New Settlement Community Center just two blocks away.  

New Settlement Community Campus Groundbreaking

Settlement Housing Fund and New Settlement Apartments hosted a groundbreaking for the New Settlement Community Campus on Jerome Avenue in the Mount Eden neighborhood of the Bronx.  Community members were joined by friends and supporters at the construction site of the future Campus, a pre-K through 12th grade public school and community center with swimming pool, art and dance studios, amphitheater and green roof terrace.  The Campus was completed in 2012 and offers a unique model, as the school and community center facilities are shared by the students and members of the community.
