Ludlow Street will be an 8-story, 71-unit senior housing development in Yonkers, NY. Located on the perimeter of downtown Yonkers, this new development will be easily accessible by the Metro North Rail Road, as well as city buses. It is a short distance from the retail and community facilities center of Yonkers.
Built under HUD 202 guidelines, all units will be one-bedroom units with full kitchens and bathrooms. The ground floor will include a residential lobby with indoor seating area, mail room and three offices, as well as a community room with kitchenette and laundry room. Located off the community room and laundry room will be a partially covered outdoor seating deck. On each floor there is a seating lounge at the elevator lobby, and handrails, senior-sensitive lighting and finishes that minimize glare throughout the building. There is a generous outdoor garden space for the seniors accessible from the ground floor.
The building design targets LEED for Homes Gold certification, as well as NYSERDA’s Energy Star Multi-family Program compliance. The building will include such sustainable measures as linoleum Forbo floors [made from 97% natural raw materials], engineered concrete stone floors, and high-performance energy efficient windows.
