What We Do In Development

CHDC works on projects in varying stages of development including both new construction and renovation projects. We partner with the City of New York and private developers to ensure construction of high quality, supportive and low- to middle-income affordable housing. Projects range from affordable housing that includes community gathering spaces, beautiful gardens, and commercial spaces to cultural and community facilities. Our goal is to respect the neighborhood's character and continue to foster its unique cultural, age and economic diversity.
