Construction Begins on LGBTQ-Inclusive Affordable Housing in Harlem

Construction is underway at Homeward Central Harlem, a $22 million LGBTQ-inclusive affordable housing development for LGBTQ young adults in Manhattan.

The nine-story building at 15 West 118th Street in Harlem will feature 50 furnished studio apartments equipped with energy-efficient appliances, low-cost Internet, and on-site social services. The facility, slated to open in 2023, will serve young homeless individuals from the ages of 18 to 24 years old and provide them with counseling support alongside courses to help build life skills.

Governor Hochul, who announced that the building was under construction, praised the project as a step toward combatting the homelessness crisis.
