Seward Park Area
We’re looking to bring Former Site Tenants Home! Were you displaced from one of the tenement buildings on the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area (SPURA) that was bulldozed between 1965 and 1973? Check out this website and contact us to learn about how you can apply for and access the new affordable housing that is now being built on this large and vacant site.
You may qualify for preference in the lottery for affordable housing apartments in new developments on the SPURA site.
