Development—White Plains, New York
YWCA Residences for Women
Following completion of pre-development planning services, Jonathan Rose Companies was selected by the YWCA of White Plains and Central Westchester as their co-developer for the renovation of the YWCA Residence for Women at 69 North Broadway in White Plains. The Residence provides permanent affordable housing and supportive services to low-income adult women in the region.
The newly renovated green facility will house women who earn 50% of area median income (AMI) or below, with the majority of residents earning below 30% AMI. A healthier facility will enable the YWCA to enhance its counseling, case management, health and wellness programming, and other onsite supportive services.
As a model for the conversion of existing affordable housing buildings to green residences, the YWCA Residence for Women complies with NYSERDA's Multifamily Performance Program and Enterprise Green Communities criteria. Green features include an ENERGY STAR roof, water-conserving fixtures, high-efficiency mechanical systems, and sustainable construction materials. The project is also situated in a mixed-use area, close to public transportation and downtown amenities.
Renovations and new construction are sensitive to the architecturally significant buildings on the YWCA site, including a four-story1914 Tudor-style building, the Kennedy Duncan Residence, as well as an AIA award-winning, four-story building, Acheson Wallace Hall. The buildings total 88,000 square feet and share an entrance and ground-floor office/common space.
“Women have a new home for the Holidays. I wanted to thank you for all that JRCo has done. Your exceptional staff and personal guidance over the years brought this project in on time and on budget. ”
