Phase 1 of The Peninsula, an affordable housing development constructed on the site of the former Spofford Juvenile Detention Center, opened today in the Hunts Point neighborhood of Bronx. This phase of the Peninsula will bring 183 affordable housing units to market, as well as retail space and studio space for artists. All of the 183 housing units are reserved for individuals and households earning 30-80% AMI and 18 units are specifically set aside for formerly homeless New Yorkers. When the five-acre development is complete, it will include an additional 557 affordable housing units, an early childhood education center, a one-acre public plaza, a wellness center, and a supermarket. You can read more about the Peninsula and watch video from the grand opening on NYC.gov and at Multi-Housing News and the Bronx Times.
