City Looks to Hear from New Yorkers Interested in Shaping the Vision for the Site, Starting with Community Engagement Events This Month. 

NEW YORK– The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) is kicking off a month-long push to advance affordable housing projects on multiple public sites across the city, putting into motion a significant piece of Mayor Eric Adams’ 24 in 24 plan announced in his State of the City address last week. Through the 24 in 24 plan, the Adams administration plans to advance 24 affordable housing projects on public sites in 2024 that will ultimately create or preserve over 12,000 units of housing through partnerships across HPD, the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), and the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA).  

Today, HPD is announcing an exciting process to redevelop an unused, city-owned parking lot along the waterfront of northern Manhattan into approximately 570 affordable homes, public waterfront greenspace, and a new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) facility. Starting this week, the city will be holding community outreach events to seek community input through a questionnaire on their vision for the site, including the type of housing, architectural and landscaping design, uses for the open space, services, and the community amenities they envision for this site along 9th Avenue in Inwood. Inwood residents are invited to stop by the Inwood Public Library at 4857 Broadway on Thursday, February 1st, between 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm to learn more about the site, share their input by filling out the project questionnaire, and ask any questions.
