During the last edition of the Multifamily Pillars of the Industry Awards which took place in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 21st, 2020, HANAC Corona Senior Residence was the recipient of the Best in Green Affordable Multifamily Award.

The HANAC Corona Senior Residence goes above and beyond in responding to New York’s demand for safe and affordable housing through innovative and sustainable building design including passive house.

The project fosters an intergenerational community through the inclusion of a pre-kindergarten on the ground floor, administered by the New York City School Construction Authority, which provides 54 slots for students.  The eight-story building in Corona, NY provides 67 affordable apartment units to low-income seniors, including 21 units set aside for formerly homeless seniors.

Congratulations to all partners and team members who worked on this project!
