Government officials and non-profit leaders held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Oct. 24 to celebrate the completion of a supportive housing development in Harlem with services for homeless LGBTQ youth and young adults between the ages of 18 and 25. So far, 49 out of 50 tenants have moved into fully-furnished studio apartments in the building, which broke ground in November of 2021. The $22 million, nine-story project at 15 West 118 Street, dubbed Homeward Central Harlem, was developed by Type A Projects and Azimuth Development Group. The non-profit Homeward NYC will run onsite services and co-own the property. KeyBank Community Development Lending and Investment and other affordable housing firms contributed to funding the project, as well as the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), state agencies, and funding from other organizations.
