Yesterday, workers began putting up the sidewalk shed at 710 E. Ninth St. between Avenue C and Avenue D... at the Henry Street Settlement Day Care #3 building...
We reported on this project in May 2010.
The project includes a community facility space on the ground floor and in the basement... the upper levels will house 46 units (28 studios and 12 one-bedroom apartments). The housing will serve homeless young adults and young adults aging out of the foster-care system. An additional 12 units will be set aside for young single adults with a child.
The project is a joint venture among Phipps Houses ... University Settlement/The Door ... and Loisaida, Inc. SLCE Architects created the plans...
And proof that not every single new development in the neighbor is for the wealthy...

Oh, hooray. Why don't they put these kinds of facilities on, say, the Upper East Side or Park Avenue? Nothing against the people who need these types of places -- they're necessary -- but our neighborhood is already clogged with government and quasi-government housing of all stripes.
