This month, Met Council officially welcome 80 low income seniors into their new affordable apartments in Met Council’s Council Towers VII in Co-Op City. The residents joined the residents living in the adjacent Council Towers I and III.
“We know that the single greatest challenge faced by our clients is the lack of affordable housing. Particularly vulnerable are seniors,” said Met Council CEO Alan Schoor. “The need for affordable housing for our City’s seniors is only growing. According to the New York City Department of City Planning, within the next 25 years the number of seniors in the Bronx is on track to increase by 57 percent to nearly 228,000 older adults.
We believe that a safe, secure, and affordable home is essential for seniors to age with dignity. We are incredibly proud that Council Towers VII helps address this need.”
We are honored to have to have worked with so many wonderful partners, including:
The Arker Companies, Aufgang Architects, the Bronx Borough President, Ruben Diaz Jr., Housing & Community Development Consulting, HPD, HUD, NYCHA, and Wells Fargo.
