Hudson Will Lead Greenpoint Hospital Redevelopment
Historic Greenpoint Hospital, vacant since 1982, will see new life as a mixed-use complex featuring 512 units of affordable housing. The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development selected a team of Hudson Companies and St. Nicks Alliance to redevelop the 3.4-acre campus in the Greenpoint-Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Along with affordable apartments and 21,500 square feet of community space, the redevelopment will also provide a new building for an existing homeless shelter. Thirty percent of the apartments will be set aside for homeless New Yorkers exiting the shelter program and getting back on their feet.
“As we continue to move aggressively to redevelop our dwindling supply of city-owned land, it’s a privilege to have the chance to transform this unique site,” said HPD Commissioner Maria Torres-Springer. Hudson principal Aaron Koffman said his company was eager to begin working with stakeholders “to revive a historic section of East Williamsburg.”
