Locals to provide "creative ideas" for proposed 55-unit development

Upper West Side residents will have an opportunity to comment on where the city should build a $50 million affordable housing development in the neighborhood.

Residents will help generate a list of “creative ideas” about where the city should build the development, which is being funded by $50 million contribution from Collegiate School.

The private, K-8 boys’ school originally agreed to construct 55 affordable housing units within the Riverside South development in exchange for permission to build a new school at the site, according to DNAinfo. But Collegiate School admitted in early March that a deal couldn’t be reached, and it would instead make a multimillion-dollar contribution to the city to construct the units.

Upper West Side residents were consequently “infuriated” by the changing nature of the school’s commitment, according to DNAinfo, and frustrated by the city’s suggestion to build the units at a different location on West 105th Street. [DNAinfo] – Rey Mashayekhi
