The Town of Hempstead will build a 77 unit affordable housing complex for seniors on the site of an elementary school that was torn down in 2014. The town board unanimously approved the plan at its Tuesday meeting, Newsday reported. To qualify, applicants must be 62 and older while earning between 30 and 60 percent of the area’s median income (which for a three-person family is about $93,900). The complex will have 60 one-bedroom units and 16 two-bedroom units in prefabricated buildings. The developer, Georgica Green Ventures LLC, will order the prefabricated homes from Simplex of Pennsylvania. The units could be available as soon as next summer. [Newsday]
