The Community League of the Heights, or CLOTH, a Washington Heights-based non-profit, announced that it plans to build a six-story supportive housing complex next year at 2142 Amsterdam Ave., between 166th and 167th streets, for formerly homeless and mentally disabled people, DNAinfo reported. The plan is now awaiting final approval from the Department of Housing, Preservation and Development. “HPD has made its commitment, it’s now just a matter of dotting our Is and crossing our Ts,” said Yvonne Stennett, CLOTH’s executive director. Stennett said tenants would be provided with case management at the independent living residence in an effort to foster self-sufficiency. Residents would also receive training for jobs and life skills, as well as case management services. CLOTH hopes to begin construction in early 2012 and complete it by mid-2013. The development would feature 42 studio apartments with private bathrooms and kitchenettes. A superintendent for the building would live in one apartment full-time. Once plans for the development are finalized, CLOTH will select tenants from the city’s list of formerly homeless people, and from its own list. Up to 40 percent of the accepted residents will be people who live in, or have participated in, programs in Community Boards 9 and 12. [DNAinfo]
