Eleven Affordable Apartments for Seniors
The Croton Housing Network is proud to announce that construction of Symphony Knoll is almost complete, with occupancy planned for November of 2009. Applications for these apartments were accepted between June 25 and July 31, and a lottery was held on August 1, 2009, to determine the order in which the apartments are offered. Fifty-eight applicants entered the lottery. Those whose lottery numbers were too high for an apartment initially have been placed on a waiting list in lottery number order. Applications received after the July 31 deadline are added to the waiting list after those in the lottery, in the order the applications are received.
The long and amazing journey to this point began in 2004 when an ideal site became available, as these pictures show.
At 15 Mount Airy Road, just north of Grand Street, Symphony Knoll is located in the heart of Croton. There will be 11 affordable one-bedroom units, eight of Floor Plan B, 650 square feet in area, and three of Floor Plan A, 825 square feet. Our brochure contains details. Designed specifically for seniors, these one-bedroom units feature:
