Last Thursday, the ribbon was cut on a renovated affordable housing project at 271 and 291 Bainbridge Street. It was the work of HPD, Enterprise Community Partners, Low Income Investment Fund, NYS Housing Trust Fund and New Destiny Housing. New Destiny is a nonprofit that works with low-income families and individuals at risk of homelessness and domestic violence by connecting them to safe, permanent housing and services.

The four-building, 36-unit affordable complex got $9.4 million in upgrades. Each renovated building now contains six apartments set aside for formerly homeless families, with rents affordable to very low and low income tenants.

Renovations also included new roofs, joist replacement, new and improved lighting in hallways, masonry cleaning, new boilers, additional security cameras, renovated lobbies, new landscaping in all backyards, and new children’s play equipment. Apartment upgrades included new bath and kitchen fixtures, new appliances, floor replacements, tiling and painting. Check out the apartments below!
