Armonk Commons affordable housing celebrated


Armonk Commons

TOWN OF NORTH CASTLE – Housing advocates and Westchester County officials celebrated the opening of Armonk Commons on Friday. The townhouse development has 10 affordable units in the Town of North Castle.

The two-bedroom duplexes on Old Route 22 in Armonk are near public transportation, major roadways, daycare, houses of worship, retail and employment opportunities and are part of the Byram Hills School District.

The homes are among some 850 units that the county is developing in accordance with the 2009 housing settlement.

To date, six of the new homes are occupied while another four are in the sale process. After subsidies, the final sale prices are between $208,000 and $218,000 and are affordable to families with incomes of 80 percent of the Westchester County Area Median Income, which for 2017 is $71,360 for a two-person household and $80,240 for a three-person household.

The county kicked in $1.7 million through its affordable housing funds, which included $250,000 for the Town of North Castle to make infrastructure improvements and construction sidewalks connecting the homes to downtown Armonk.
