Construction has started on Dayspring Campus, a $39 million development with 63 affordable apartments and a newly renovated community center in Southwest Yonkers.

Dayspring Commons, the campus’s residential building, will include 37 apartments reserved for formerly homeless individuals who will receive onsite supportive services. Additionally, a former church will be transformed into a state-of-the-art 27,400 sq. ft. community facility called the Dayspring Community Center. The center will provide childcare, recreation, employment and counseling services for neighborhood residents.

“The Dayspring Campus is a strategic investment in the city of Yonkers that will create more affordable housing, reduce homelessness and further economic development in the city’s downtown,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement. “This is the latest step forward in our historic investment to ensure that every New Yorker has a home, and this Campus will provide the critical services necessary so that the Southwest Yonkers community can grow and thrive.”

The new six-story building at 227 Elm St., will include a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments. Building amenities will include a community room, exercise room, laundry room, covered parking garage, security office and an outdoor landscaped seating area.
