Lott CDC’s mission to help house New Yorkers in need has resulted in the development of 27 buildings offering almost 700 affordable rental apartments, from studios to three-bedrooms. Over the past twenty five years, Lott has renovated and redeveloped twenty two vacant and underutilized buildings to provide much-needed housing. This work has rescued entire blocks from the blighting effects of abandonment and decay and has been instrumental in sparking the revitalization of Northern Manhattan. In addition, Lott has built five new buildings, including three exclusively for the seniors. In todays changing neighborhoods of East and Central Harlem, an influx of for-profit development is making the need for affordable housing even more critical. Lott CDC continues to expand the opportunities it can offer New Yorkers in need.
