NYACK - Housing advocates and their supporters announced this week the completion of the Nyack Point Apartments development on Main Street.
The 33-unit affordable rental apartment building is located at 263 Main St., across from Highland Hose Co. No. 5.
The building consists of nine studios as well as 12 one-bedroom and 12 two-bedroom units. The site also includes 10,000 square feet of parking under the building.
Gerri Levy, executive director of the Rockland Housing Action Coalition, who spearheaded the project, thanked all those supporters who made the housing complex possible.
"I am so grateful to have partnered with New York state, County of Rockland, Federal Home Loan Bank, Community Preservation Corporation and all of our other funders to provide affordable housing in Rockland County," she said in a statement, noting that she would especially like to thank the village of Nyack and its Mayor Jen White for their assistance. "It was an honor to work in a village that totally embraces the importance of providing affordable housing for individuals and families of modest means."
Income-eligible applicants participated in the lottery last year, and all 33 units are currently occupied.
Rents range from $442 to $720 for a one-bedroom; and $520 to $895 for a two-bedroom unit, according to the coalition's website.
The three-story building's main floor features a lobby, management office and community room. The second floor contains a laundry room and the third floor offers an internet/study room. Each modern apartment has ample storage with walk-in closets.
