Marketing of Affordable Apartments in Tarrytown to Begin

• Bookmarks: 160


February 3, 2019

by Alexander Roberts – 

It has been nearly 13 years since the developer of Hudson Harbor in Tarrytown committed to building 12 affordable apartments on Wildey Street, but it appears marketing of the units could begin as early as mid-February.

Tarrytown Village Administrator Richard Slingerland said National Resources had submitted a deed restriction and marketing agreement that substantially complies with the new village affordable housing guidelines, which limits rentals to households with income of no more than 60% of the Area Median Income adjusted by family size. In Westchester County, the limit for a family of two is $56,200 and $63,200 for a three-person household.

For nearly a year after the project on the site of the old Village Hall was completed, the Greenwich, Connecticut developer kept it vacant as it wrangled with the village, arguing it should not be required to meet the more stringent affordable housing guidelines adopted by the village five years after he signed the original agreement. The old guidelines, in effect before the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) lawsuit against Westchester was settled, allowed higher rents and preferences for village employees and residents, which were eliminated. Rents are expected to range from about $1,200 for a one-bedroom and $1,400 for a two-bedroom apartment.

Rose Noonan, executive director of the Tarrytown-based nonprofit that will market the units, said she has an agreement with the developer and applications “should be available in the next few weeks, once the village gives its final okay.”

Anyone interested in renting one of the apartments may call the Housing Action Council at 914-332-4144.
