Affordable housing plan for Doat Street warehouse gets green light

A proposal to convert a warehouse at 19 Doat St. into low-income apartments and a neighborhood health clinic can proceed after winning unanimous Common Council approval Tuesday.

Regan Development Corp. of Ardsley, N.Y., wants to convert the 100,000-square-foot former Monarch Knitting Co. building into 74 affordable-housing apartments, plus 5,700-square-feet of community space.

The developer is partnering with the Lt. Col. Matt Urban Human Services Center of Western New York to provide services to residents. Twenty-one units will be reserved for the homeless or people with special needs.

The $10 million project includes construction of a separate 8,100-square-foot outpatient clinic, to be run by Jericho Road Community Health Center.

“We believe it’s going to be a real nice asset to the community," said Matt Urban Executive Director Marlies Wesolowski.
