Mott Haven residents will soon welcome a new building that will bring affordable housing options to their neighborhood. 
The construction site on Tinton Avenue will soon become St. Anselm Apartments. It is on its way to providing 126 units that will be reserved for families and individuals who are low-income or struggling with homelessness and domestic violence.  
The area was formerly a vacant parking lot right next to St. Anselm Church. It will be a climate-friendly building equipped with a rooftop solar array and energy-efficient windows, according to Catholic Homes New York.  
“I believe this will help a lot of people trying to come in,” said local resident Sam. “Especially with what’s been going on with crazy rent prices.” 
Mountco Construction told News 12 that they are looking to get the first residents through the door and into their homes by May 2025.
