What’s in the Pipeline?
The Equity Project Charter School (TEP)
WSFSSH serves as development partner for The Equity Project Charter School, a 480-student middle school serving grades five through eight. WSFSSH is building TEP’s permanent facility at a location on Sherman Avenue in Washington Heights in Upper Manhattan. The school is currently operating in temporary facilities on the grounds of the George Washington High School.
Tres Puentes is WSFSSH’s newest project. Currently in the pre-development stage, Tres Puentes will provide approximately 176 units of affordable senior housing, a large Senior Center, and community-oriented retail to the Mott Haven neighborhood of the Bronx. Two new buildings will be constructed adjacent to WSFSSH’s Borinquen Court. The project received a commitment for Project-Based Section 8 from the New York City Housing Authority. The name, Tres Puentes, means three bridges. The 145th Street, Madison Avenue, and 3rd Avenue Bridges all can be seen from Borinquen Court.
