Subsidized senior housing to replace Greenburgh homeless shelter

November 01, 2017 10:13PM

An abandoned homeless shelter in Greenburgh will be converted to subsidized housing for seniors. In a deal reached last week, Marathon Development Group of Peekskill will develop the six-acre county-owned site adjacent to Westchester Community College, Westchester Business Journal reported. Marathon is paying the county and the town a combined total of $1.5 million to develop the property and will spend $6 million on repairs and improvements within three years. WestHELP housing had 108 studio apartments, which will be converted into 54 one- and two-bedroom units for tenants, chosen by lottery, who are at least 62 years old and meet income criteria. The proposal next goes to the county board of legislators. [WBJ]
