Mental Health Association of Columbia-Greene Counties celebrated the opening of Greenport Gardens Apartments on July 19 in Hudson. The newly constructed two story building includes 66 units, 48 of which are supportive while the rest are reserved for low-income individuals and families. CSD Housing LLC was the co-developer.
The ribbon cutting ceremony included prominent government and private sector partners including Commissioner of the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, Samuel D. Roberts, representing Governor Cuomo.
“Supportive housing projects like the beautiful Greenport Gardens Apartments are vital in helping individuals and families gain better health and stability in their lives,” remarked Commissioner Roberts.
Greenport Gardens has 48 supportive housing units, twenty-five of which are reserved for individuals and families with special needs who are unstably housed, ten of which are reserved for high-cost Medicaid users. An additional thirteen units are licensed New York State Office of Mental Health apartments that were relocated to Greenport Gardens.
Greenport Gardens includes outdoor landscaped common areas, an exercise room, as well as computer and multi-purpose rooms open to all tenants. The complex also includes a bike storage area and a tenant storage area in which tenants will have their own locked units. There is also office space designated specifically for support services, which are funded by the Office of Mental Health.
Funding for the project was provided by NYS Office of Mental Health, the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, the NYS Homes and Community Renewal’s Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit allocation and the NYS Energy Research and Development Authority. The building was designed by Re4orm Architecture and Christa Construction, LLC was the contractor on the project.
