More affordable, supportive housing is underway in the Mt. Hope section of the Bronx, New York after today's official ground breaking ceremony. Developed by Unique People Services, Inc. (UPS) a supportive housing services provider since 1991, 2050 Grand Concourse will bring an infusion of much needed affordable housing. In addition to providing affordable housing options for New Yorkers, 2050 Grand Concourse will offer a stable home and wrap around support services for individuals who have experienced homelessness.
Maygen Moore, CSH Senior Community Investment Officer, was on hand to help celebrate this milestone occasion. CSH provided a $6.8 million predevelopment and acquisition loan to UPS obtain site control and cover early-stage development costs. Founded in 1991 UPS currently operates 24 supportive housing programs in the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Westchester.
2050 Grand Concourse will also serve as the new Unique People Services staff and social service programs headquarters and will provide community amenities for area residents and organizations.
