ART+DESIGN - Our Spring Gala is around the corner!! Join us TUESDAY, JUNE 7TH at the prestigious Museum of the City of New York to honor our exceptional design partners, reveal new project designs, and introduce our community-driven Public Art Initiatives!
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. 
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.
Ascendant Neighborhood Development Corporation is one of this year’s Preserve New York (PNY) grantees! The grant of $12,000 will fund a Cultural Resource Survey of Southern East Harlem. We are very grateful to the Preservation League of NYS and their program partners at the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) who have made this important funding possible.
