U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and city officials joined HANAC, Inc. (HANAC), Enterprise Community Partners, Chase and community stakeholders to celebrate the completion and grand opening of HANAC’s Corona Senior Residence in Queens’ Corona neighborhood.

The newly-constructed eight-story development includes a mix of 67 affordable studios and one-bedroom apartments, along with an onsite preschool administered by the New York City School Construction Authority that currently serves nearly 60 children.

The $36-million residence is one of the largest low-income senior housing developments in the nation to meet Passive Housing Institute Design Standards, which cut energy consumption by up to 90%. It was developed out of the Willets Point Community Benefits Agreement.

“Chase is committed to supporting vibrant and diverse communities through affordable housing, including in Queens where access for low-income seniors is vital to sustaining an inclusive community,” said Dave Walsh, Northeast regional manager for community development banking, Chase.
