Tres Puentes: prototype for the new Housing+ initiative

Mayor Bill De Blasio held a news event at the site of Tres Puentes and Borinquen Court on January 16, 2019 to celebrating the financing of 34,160 affordable homes last year. To celebrate this historic milestone, the Mayor visited Tres Puentes, a new senior housing development financed through HPD’s Senior Affordable Rental Apartments program. These 175 new affordable apartments for seniors, including 53 formerly homeless seniors, were constructed on what had been a parking lot and underused space next to Borinquen Court, a 145-apartment federal Housing and Urban Development 202 senior project that the City previously preserved. This project is the prototype for the new Housing+ initiative proposed as part of HNY 2.0. See the full article here.
