At the recent press conference held on Friday in front of 28 Lander Street, the Newburgh Land Bank and state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced 25 homes that will be targeted for rehabilitation and an additional $20 million dollar grant to be awarded to NY land banks in October. Properties bounded by Broadway, First, Liberty Street and Dubois Street are a part of the revitalization plan. One of the buildings on Lander Street will be developed into workforce housing creating 20 rental units. The land bank also will create single family homes and opportunities for homeownership.
The rendering above was created by the Newburgh Land Bank’s new project manager especially for the press conference. It is only a concept, not an actual plan.
