Yonkers Development Features Affordable and Supportive Housing

A unique housing development that features affordable and supportive housing has opened in Yonkers. Called Landy Court, the 7-story building features 32 efficiency one- and two-bedroom affordable housing units for individuals and families who meet the affordable housing guidelines. The building also has 48 efficiency units of supportive housing. Referrals for the supportive housing units will come from the Westchester County Single Point of Access program. Located at 10 School Street, Landy Court includes amenities such as a roof-top garden; fitness center; large community rooms; library/computer and laundry facilities.

Speaking at a ribbon-cutting ceremony held June 9, Saint Joseph’s Medical Center President and CEO Michael Spicer said, “Saint Joseph’s affordable and supportive housing meets a significant need in our community. The affordable housing provides an attractive, new permanent place to live for local individuals and families who meet the qualifications. The 48 supportive apartments will meet the needs of those individuals who have demonstrated the ability to live independently in the community with on-site support services. This program is designed to offer support and assistance to help individuals maintain skills of daily living and foster successful integration in the community.”

Officials attending the grand opening event included Councilwoman Corazon Pineda Isaac; Westchester County Executive George Latimer; Yonkers Deputy Mayor Anthony Landi; Assemblyman Nader Sayegh; Ralph Fasano; Saint Joseph’s Medical Center Chairman James Landy; City Council President Lakisha Collins-Bellamy; Dr. Ann Sullivan, Commissioner of New York State Office of Mental Health; Ruthanne Visnauskas, Commissioner of the NYS Division of Housing and Community Renewal, and Brenda McAteer, Assistant Director, New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance.

The $49 million Landy Court was co-developed in partnership with Concern Housing, Inc and CSD Housing LLC. The building is named after James J. Landy who has served as Chairman of the Board of Saint Joseph’s Medical Center since 1991 and has long been an advocate for affordable and supportive housing.
