Yonkers Celebrates New Mixed-Income Community

City, County and State officials recently joined with the Municipal Housing Authority for the City of Yonkers (MHACY) and The Community Builders (TCB) to celebrate the completion of 172 Warburton at The Ridgeway, a new $53.5 million transformative mixed-income residential community in Southwest Yonkers.

172 Warburton at The Ridgeway continues the strong partnership between MHACY and TCB to transform Southwest Yonkers by replacing three outdated Cottage Place Gardens public housing buildings and a vacant, dilapidated three-story residence with a new, energy efficient eight-story elevator residential building containing 85 apartments. The new development includes a universal pre-kindergarten center located at the street level of the building operated by WestCOP to serve both lower-income families at The Ridgeway communities and the broader neighborhood.

“The redevelopment of Cottage Gardens into The Ridgeway is yet another example of how Yonkers is revitalizing our neighborhoods and improving the lives of all our residents. As we see luxury housing rising along the riverfront, it is also important that we provide quality affordable housing, so all boats rise with the tide,” said Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano at the October 29 event.

“172 Warburton is the type of Public Private Partnership that shows these partnerships produce terrific results. We are very grateful to New York State, Westchester County, the City of Yonkers and our partners at The Community Builders for making this level of quality affordable housing available to our tenants,” said MHACY President and CEO Wilson Kimball who is a BCW Board member.

172 Warburton at the Ridgeway is the fourth phase of a six-phase master plan to redevelop the outdated Cottage Place Gardens public housing complex into The Ridgeway, a mixed-income community.
