Fox Point Featured on PBS
On August 28th, OCV’s award winning building at Fox Point was featured on PBS’s MetroFocus, as part of a special report on supportive housing in New York City: ‘Supportive Housing: Solutions Beyond Shelter for the Chronically Homeless.’
The piece highlights residents of Fox Point and includes an interview with Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development Alicia Glen on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s landmark affordable housing plan. This fall Fox Point celebrates it’s 5th year of servicing the community. The building readily achieved LEED Gold in 2012, one of the first supportive housing projects in NYC to do so.
