Habitat for Humanity New York City has broken ground on Sydney House, a cooperative for low- to moderate-income households to rise at 839-843 Tilden Street in the Williamsbridge section of the Bronx. Developed in partnership with Almat Development and the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (NYC HPD), the project is being developed as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio's Open Door affordable housing initiative, which aims to create and preserve 300,000 units of affordable housing by 2026.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., New York State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, Council Member Andy King, and State Senator Jamaal Bailey were among the dignitaries on hand to mark the occasion.
“Rental buildings often dominate the [affordable housing] conversation, but we need more solutions to enable young families to put down roots and build up equity” – Council Member Andy King
According to the release, Sydney House is the largest structure ever built by a Habitat for Humanity affiliate. The 56 units will be broken down into 26 one-bedrooms, 23 two-bedrooms, and seven three-bedroom homes. Amenities will include a 2,000-square-foot recreational space, storage, laundry room, bike room, parking, and green roof. It is located four blocks from the Gun Hill Road subway stop and offers easy access to the Bronx Zoo, New York Botanical Garden, and other local points of interest.
