Harlem Senior Housing Gets $38M Upgrade

July 29, 2014

Philips Senior HouseA 200-unit senior housing development in Harlem has been preserved with the help of state aid.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the completion of the $38 million renovation of Philip’s Senior House on Tuesday.

He says the Mitchell-Lama housing will remain affordable for low-and-moderate-income seniors for 40 years. It opened in 1974.

The upgrade was supplemented by the state’s $1 billion House New York program. It included more than $22.6 million in tax exempt bonds from New York State Homes and Community Renewal.

Cuomo says the building was only half occupied before the renovation because of years of deferred maintenance.
