Originally, as part of the development in Riverside South, The Collegiate School was supposed to build 55 units of affordable housing on site. Earlier this year, their proposal to contribute $50mm instead of building out the apartments was accepted by the City of New York. Next month, at a Community Board 7 meeting, residents will have a chance to weigh on possible locations. The Collegiate School will be located at 61st and Freedom Place and locals are hoping the affordable housing will be as close to the Riverside South development as possible.
