NYCHA to Demolish and Rebuild Two Affordable Housing Complexes in Chelsea, Manhattan

Published by on

NYCHA has announced a $1.5 billion plan to demolish and rebuild the Fulton and Elliott-Chelsea Houses in Chelsea. To complete the project, NYCHA has partnered with Essence Development and Related Companies, who will also work closely with residents and tenant associations to help ensure alignment among all community members.

The Fulton Houses are located between West 16th and 19th Streets and bounded by Ninth and Tenth Avenues. Not too far away, Elliott-Chelsea Houses are located between West 25th and 27th streets and Ninth and Tenth avenues. Together, the campuses currently provide 2,005 affordable and supportive housing units and house around 4,500 people.

The decision to raze and rebuild was finalized after 57 percent of the existing tenants voted in favor of tearing down the eight buildings. When complete, the redevelopment will add an additional 3,500 apartments and include a mix of income-restricted units.

Additional components will include an early childhood development center, health centers, retail businesses, an art walk, workforce training centers, and updated landscaping
