Saint Joseph Medical Center President Michael Spicer and Saint Joseph Medical Center President James Landy joined representatives from Yonkers, Westchester County and New York State today on 9 June for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of Landy Court, an affordable apartment building located at 10 School Street in downtown Yonkers.

The 7-story building features 32 affordable one- and two-bedroom units for individuals and families that meet the Affordable Housing Guidelines. The building also has 48 energy efficient supportive housing units. Referrals for supportive housing units will come from the Westchester County Single Access Point Program, coordinated by the Westchester County Department of Community Mental Health. Landy Court’s facilities include a roof garden; Fitness Center; large community halls; library/computer and laundry.

The $49 million Landy Court was co-developed in partnership with Concern Housing, Inc and CSD Housing LLC. The participation of the following funders and government agencies made this project a reality: NYS Office of Mental Health; NYS Housing Finance Agency; NYS Housing and Community Renewal; NYS Homeless Housing and Assistance Corporation; New York State Dormitory Authority; The Richman Group; and Bank of America.

“Saint Joseph’s affordable and supportive housing meets an important need in our community. Affordable housing provides an attractive new permanent place to live for local individuals and families who meet the criteria. The 48 supportive apartments will meet the needs of people who have demonstrated the ability to live independently in the community with on-site support services. This program is designed to provide support and assistance to help individuals maintain life skills and promote successful integration into the community,” said Michael Spicer, President and CEO of Saint Joseph’s Medical Center.

“Congratulations to Saint Joseph Medical Center on the vision and completion of this wonderful addition to our city’s housing stock,” said Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano. “Saint Joseph’s has long been a cornerstone of our community and this project demonstrates their continued commitment to the needs of our residents, providing new quality affordable housing.

OMH Commissioner Dr. Ann Sullivan said: “Landy Court will provide people living with mental illness with the on-site services and safe, stable homes they need to live full and productive lives in their own communities. It’s a great addition to downtown Yonkers and another example of Governor Hochul’s commitment to helping vulnerable New Yorkers, and we at the OMH are proud to have played a part in its construction. .

The building is named after James J. Landy, who has served as Chairman of the Board of Saint Joseph Medical Center since 1991 and is a longtime advocate for affordable and supportive housing.
