IMPACCT Senior Residences

Organization Name: IMPACCT Brooklyn

Project Title: IMPACCT Senior Residences

Project Location: 811 Lexington Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11221

Project Description:
The IMPACCT Senior Residences development is in collaboration with the Northeastern Conference of Seventh Day Adventists (NCSDA), who owns the land on which the project is being built. This 15,500 square foot lot at 811 Lexington Avenue will house a four story, 41,421 square foot building. The site was formerly occupied by a parking lot and a vacant, two-story industrial building that was the old Mars Fudge and Fruit Company building. The project will include 63 rent-subsidized housing units tailored for affordable senior living and 1 superintendent’s unit, as well as a multi-purpose community room, laundry room, office on the lower level, and twenty exterior parking spaces on the ground level for church usage. In addition, the development will include a 503 sq. ft. recreation room on the roof level opening out into a landscaped roof garden. Additionally, seating areas, a patio, and paths will enhance the experience for those accessing the garden by incorporating active design elements. Construction is anticipated to be completed at the end of 2023.

Community Impact:
The development will be a long-awaited affordable housing complex tailored for senior living. Located in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, this new four-story building will provide rent-subsidized housing for low-income seniors earning less than 50% of the area median income, with at least 30% of units set aside for seniors at risk of homelessness. This project represents an investment of $36 million in affordable housing in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
