Ascendant Neighborhood Development Corporation builds homes, engages community members, and partners with allies to raise up neighborhoods that provide stability and access to opportunity for all.

Read more about our work, impact, and upcoming projects in our What We Do  section, and please reach out with any questions or suggestions for projects we can support. Thank you for helping us build homes and raise up communities in NYC. 



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. 
We are very proud to announce that the New York City Department of Housing Development and Preservation (HPD) has chosen Ascendant Neighborhood Development (AND) and The Community Builders (TCB) to redevelop the existing East Harlem Multi-Service Center site.
