Affordable Housing Continues to Rise in Spring Valley



The recent ground breaking on a new, mixed-use, multi-family housing development, designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning (MAP), marked the start of the second phase of the downtown revitalization plan for Spring Valley, NY. Part of a comprehensive Main Street Urban Renewal Plan, the $16 million Spring Valley Family Apartments will provide 55 units of affordable housing for families earning 60% of Ihe Rockland County AMI and will contain one-, two- and three-bedroom rental units, 7,000 square feet of street-front commercial space, a landscaped terrace, a community room, and parking. The project is located across the street from the Spring Valley Senior Housing project with 53 units of housing in addition to 11 ,000 square feet of commercial retail space. Future plans call for the construction of eight single·family affordable townhomes behind the senior housing. MAP is the project architect for all three phases being developed by the partnership of Community Preservation Resources (CPC), Rockland Housing Action Coalition, and the Village of Spring Valley.
