This innovative transaction preserved aged affordable multifamily and senior apartment homes within four different properties in downtown Newark, creating a new sense of pride and a strengthened sense of community in the city.

Project at a Glance

New Community Corporation and Greystone Affordable Development launched a major initiative to preserve and upgrade a portion of NCC’s affordable housing properties located throughout the city of Newark. The newly renovated homes are a valuable resource for both the elderly and families in Newark, who might otherwise not have access to safe, dependable, and affordable housing.

The tax-exempt and tax credit capital infusion enabled NCC to embark on an 18-month substantial rehab for both interior and exterior that gave its residents a well-deserved refresh, prolonging the life of the affordable homes for decades to come.
