Mill Brook Terrace Celebrates Opening — A Triumph for Seniors

Seniors at Mill Brook Terrace is a 158-unit supportive and affordable housing complex for low-income seniors built in an innovative partnership between the West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing, NYCHA, the city Department of Housing Preservation and Development and Housing Development Corporation.

According to Bronx Times, selected through a competitive NYCHA “NextGeneration” Request for Proposals (RFP), the project is a direct result of a community visioning process that identified the need for additional senior housing and services in the neighborhood. Citywide, more than 42% of NYCHA households are headed by people 62 or older. WSFSSH was awarded the site in 2016, and Mill Brook Terrace was financed in 2017 through HDC’s Extremely Low and Low Affordability Program and HPD’s Senior Affordable Rental Apartments (SARA) program, creating 158 deeply affordable homes, including 48 supportive homes for formerly homeless seniors. Construction was completed in December 2019 and Mill Brook Terrace was fully leased in October 2020.
