GREENBURGH -

A vacant homeless shelter will soon be turned into affordable housing for seniors.

The 27-year-old project will build 54 units in Greenburgh, near Westchester Community College.

“We are providing struggling senior citizens with a place where they can age in place and really benefit from having the community around them,” says Mark Soja, CEO of Marathon Development Group.

News 12 is told the project will also include a learning center and computer room.

Local lawmakers say they are excited to help local seniors stay where they've lived their entire lives.

The tenants will be decided by lottery.
