The rents will reportedly stay relatively low on the 178 apartments at Elbee Gardens in Staten Island for another 30 years.
“The extensive renovations at Elbee Gardens we celebrate today will keep this housing viable and keep the Grasmere community thriving for the next generation of New Yorkers,” said Lynne Patton, regional administrator for New York and New Jersey for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Elbee Gardens is a six-story elevator building at 1950 Clove Rd., built under HUD’s Sec. 236 program. It hadn’t received any significant capital improvements since it first opened in 1973. It is currently fully-occupied by low-income tenants who receive Sec. 8 rental subsidies. The $38 million recapitalization fixed roofs, boilers, elevators and apartments.
