Retired four-star Gen. Colin Powell will return to his South Bronx roots on September 9th to dedicate a new and green affordable multifamily residence. The General Colin L. Powell Apartments were developed by the New York City Habitat for Humanity and Blue Sea Development Co. These co-op residences are the first “co-development” project in the nation by Habitat, according to a Sept 3 announcement.
Powell, a former Secretary of State, will welcome new homeowners as he cuts the ribbon at this building. The Habitat Web site notes that this “LEED Platinum” rated building will be the “greenest affordable multifamily residence in New York.”
