Bayshore Senior Residence
The first senior LGBT-friendly affordable housing development on Long Island, this sustainable, mixed-use building will bring 76 units of quality rental housing. A community facility on the ground floor will be open to the entire community and will provide valuable services to the senior LGBT residents and others. The facility will be operated by LGBT Services Network (“The Network”). With 4,000 members and community centers in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, The Network has a long history of working with LGBT populations of all ages in areas such as advocacy, education, support, and development.
The project is located less than a quarter mile from downtown Bayshore and a half-mile from the Bayshore Long Island Railroad station, allowing residents to live a walkable lifestyle with access to transportation to New York City and ample services including grocery stores, pharmacies, coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping.
Given the shortage of affordable housing on Long Island and a lack of supportive housing targeted toward LGBT seniors on a national level, the project has already garnered significant local support from the County Executive, Town Officials, as well as the Federal and State delegation.
The project will be financed with a combination of conventional debt, 9% LIHTC, County Funds, and deferred developer fee.
