Clinton Housing Development Company |
CHDC and its joint venture partner Taconic/Ritterman are developing the last sites of a former urban renewal area that occupied almost the entire block between 52nd and 53rd Streets and 10th and 11th Avenues. The 115,000 SF Clinton building will be 12 stories tall and contain 103 apartments for middle income residents and will include 37,500 SF of commercial space for two vested urban renewal area tenants. The building will interlock at the cellar and first floor levels with Taconic/Ritterman's 22-story building containing 324 market-rate and 81 low-income apartments and commercial space. The project required a complex rezoning through the City's ULURP process, unanimously approved by the Community Board, the City Planning Commission and the City Council. It incorporates three new community gardens, totaling 7,500 SF and 10,500 SF of rooftop open space that will comply with Enterprise Green Communities Guidelines for sustainable development.
