After much anticipation, on Wednesday, December 20, Councilman Donovan Richards, together with the NYC Department of Housing Preservation (HPD) and the Housing Development Corporation (HDC), unveiled a 100 percent affordable housing building, Beach Green Dunes on Beach 44th Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard. The development is a "passive certified building,” featuring solar panels and windows that block drafts to help make it energy efficient. There's also a gym, laundry room and other amenities. In a Twitter post, HPD tweeted, “One of the largest multifamily #passivehouse buildings in the country, Beach Green embodies the vision of our Resilient Edgemere Plan.”
According to HPD, Beach Green Dunes, opened up its application for affordable studio to three-bedroom apartments in the Fall of 2016. A total of 50,219 people applied, for roughly 100 apartments.
With the beautiful ocean view and 100 percent affordable housing with green living standards, Beach Green Dune is a boost for the Edgemere community and the overall peninsula.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
