Featured Projects

Haven Green
Little Italy, Manhattan

Haven Green is a LGBTQ-friendly senior housing development expected to consist of 123-unit deeply affordable apartments for low-income seniors with thirty-seven apartments for seniors who have been homeless. The development will include over 8,000 square feet of publicly- accessible green space, flexible community activity space, as well as onsite and community services provided by Riseboro Community Partnership, Habitat NYC and SAGE. The project will be built to Passive House standards, reducing the building’s utility expense and carbon emissions, keeping our city greener and healthier. The building and the public open space will be designed to manage and reuse stormwater. The development will also include the new headquarters for Habitat for Humanity New York City.

Sydney House
The Bronx

Sydney House, a joint venture with the Almat Group, will provide 56 hard-working New York City families the chance to become first-time homeowners in the Williamsbridge section of the Bronx. This cooperative development will include 26 one-bedroom, 23 two-bedroom, and seven three-bedroom apartments as well as ample community space for residents. Sydney House will be the largest multi-family development built by a Habitat for Humanity affiliate to date. Building amenities will include parking for vehicles and bicycles, laundry facilities, multiple green roofs, and a community area.

Dean Street Residences
Brooklyn

Located in Ocean-Hill/Brownsville in Brooklyn, Dean Street is a four-story, multi-family condo building, comprising 15 two-bedroom apartments. Among the building’s many amenities are a landscaped rear yard and on-site laundry facilities. Dean Street is also a certified Enterprise Green Communities building, meaning residents benefit from lowered utility costs and a more sustainable environment.

Critical Home Repair in Staten Island
Brooklyn and Queens

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2013, Habitat NYC sprang into action, launching our Critical Home Repair program to help low- to moderate-income homeowners repair their homes. Hurricane Sandy hit New York City on October 29, 2012, taking the lives of 53 New Yorkers, crippling the city and affecting countless New Yorkers. With the help of thousands of volunteers, we mucked out 61 homes in the immediate aftermath and in the proceeding four years, we have performed substantial repairs on 65 homes across Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.

Single Family homes
Queens

Habitat NYC has acquired a vast portfolio of dilapidated single-family homes from the New York City Housing Authority. Habitat NYC gut-renovates, or in some cases completely tears down these homes, creating well-built homes out of what were once eyesores.
The homes are scattered across Queens, but are concentrated in the Southeastern section of the borough.
