Transitional and Other Housing
New Destiny owns and developed this emergency shelter for domestic violence survivors, created from a former warehouse. It includes 11 rooms (35 beds) with shared baths and a common kitchen as well as children’s play area.
Utilizing NYC’s Inclusionary Zoning Program, New Destiny partnered with World Wide Group to renovate a five-story elevator building with eight affordable apartments – four studio and four 2-bedroom units. The building is named in memory of Matthew Gottsegen, a former member of New Destiny’s Board of Directors, who provided pro bono design services critical to the development of this project.
Buildings developed for other nonprofits
Barrier Free Living hired New Destiny to develop an 86-bed emergency residence serving disabled domestic violence survivors. The five-story facility with 44 apartments provides temporary housing for women and children who are mobility, sight or hearing-impaired. It is the only emergency facility in New York City’s domestic violence shelter system that is entirely accessible to the disabled.
Sister Marion Agnes House
New Destiny served as the developer for Nazareth Housing which sponsored the conversion of a parochial school that had been vacant for more than 50 years, into 13 units of affordable housing and two units of transitional housing.
This 20-bed emergency shelter was developed for Womankind. Originally a four family dwelling, the property underwent a moderate rehab for use as a community facility with sleeping accommodations. The renovated building houses 2 families per apartment unit with shared kitchens and baths. Social service office space is located on the first floor.
In 1992 New Destiny developed Lang House, an innovative mix of 10 transitional units (32 beds) with shared kitchens and baths and four permanent apartments for domestic violence survivors. The building was a moderate rehab of an existing apartment house.
