East Harlem Center for Living & Learning

New York City

The East Harlem Center for Living & Learning is an approximately 160,000-square-foot multifamily and mixed-use building comprised of 89 affordable housing units, a K-8 charter school, and nonprofit office space. Blake Hobbs Park also was rehabilitated and reimagined as part of the project.

The afforable housing component, the Yomo Toro Apartments, serve households that earn up to 60% of the area median income, or approximately $50,000 for a family of four.

The DREAM Charter School is the first new school building to be constructed in East Harlem in 47 years old and offers the charter school its first permanent home. The school and office portions of the building have been financed through a combination of public sources and privately raised funds.
