Under the Supportive Housing Loan Program, HPD funds the rehabilitation or new construction of buildings which provide supportive housing for the homeless, people with special needs, and other persons of low income.  HPD works with the Department of Homeless Services, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Human Resources Administration’s HIV/AIDS Services Administration, and other public agencies to ensure that the completed projects receive appropriate building social services and security.


HPD has designated West 108th Street Housing Development Fund Company, Inc. ("Sponsor") as qualified and eligible to purchase and redevelop the Disposition Area under the Supportive Housing Loan Program. HPD proposes to sell the Disposition Area to the Sponsor at the nominal price of One Dollar per tax lot pursuant to Article 16 of the General Municipal Law.  The Sponsor will also deliver a note and mortgage for the appraised value of the Disposition Area, which will be payable only if the Sponsor violates the City's restrictions on the post-sale development, use, occupancy, and operation of the property.  The Sponsor will construct one new building on the Disposition Area and the adjacent private lot Block 1863, Lot 10. The completed project will provide approximately 199 units for occupancy by homeless and low income persons, plus one unit for a superintendent and a transitional shelter facility with approximately 110 beds.


The appraisal and the proposed Land Disposition Agreement and Project Summary are available for public examination at the office of HPD, 100 Gold Street, Room 5-I, New York, New York on business days during business hours.
