Golden Age Housing

The Town of Hempstead created and adopted the unique Golden Age Zoning district to allow affordable housing for senior citizens in a public/private partnership. The Golden Age zone classification promotes senior housing by permitting construction of more units per area than normally allowed. In turn, the private developer agrees to sell the apartments at a price well below the current market value. All apartments have a property tax abatement.

Effective January 1, 2005, the Housing Authority will collect an administration fee of 2% of the agreed sale price from the purchaser.

For an application for the Golden Age Zoning Developments, please contact the Town of Hempstead Housing Authority, 760 Jerusalem Avenue, Uniondale, NY 11553 at (516) 485-9666.
