As the days dwindle in another challenging pandemic year, we thank you for sharing your valuable time with us as we've navigated a busy and intense 2021! The ongoing pandemic has left many of us unsure of what the next steps are for our lives, be it personal or professional. That is why in 2022, we at Ascendant have decided to put more energy and resources into connecting personally with our fellow East Harlem community members.
This year Ascendant added 550 deeply affordable apartments to our project pipeline, which will almost double the number of Ascendant residences in our portfolio. With these new homes come much needed social services, community spaces, and neighborhood programming that will forward our mission of building resources and opportunity for our incredible community members who call Northern Manhattan home.
AHF announced the winners last week - and thanks to your votes - we won our category! We are humbled (and excited!) to be recognized for our work preserving 21 East Harlem residential buildings and their 359 affordable apartments as part of the massive Ascendant Heritage project.
