Beach Channel Drive Apartments Coming Fall 2024
Beach Channel Drive is a 100 affordable housing development in Far Rockaway, Queens
The eight story, 133,601 square foot project will include 147 new affordable apartments, as well as 100 shelter units with supportive services for single women provided by BRC. The shelter units, which will be managed by BRC, will follow BRC's Landing Road program, a clinically-based model that provides services specifically targeted toward the needs of this vulnerable population, with an overarching focus on recovery and community reintegration goals.
Beach Channel Drive will replace three vacant buildings that were purchased by the Development Team in April 2022. Beach Channel Drive Apartments will have 125 studios, 9 one-bedroom, and 13 two-bedroom apartment units. 88 of the studio units will be supportive units reserved for formerly homeless individuals. All units will be affordable to households earning between 30 and 60 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI). Beach Channel Drive Apartments also features 1,239 square feet of community space. The building was designed by UAI, and Fifth Ave Builders will serve as the general contractor.
Resident amenities at the building will include full-time security and maintenance staff, on-site staff offices, social service programming space, a community room, outdoor recreational space, bike storage, and a laundry room. The $97 million project is financed in partnership with Citibank, Freddie Mac and the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development.
