Developer strikes deal on fair housing with US Attorney's Office

Posted: Updated:
HAVERSTRAW -

A Westchester developer has reached a fair housing settlement with the US Attorney's Office.

Two apartments that were designed and constructed by Ginsburg Development in Rockland County have features that are in violation of the federal Fair Housing Act.

Under the agreement, the developer will make necessary modifications such as widening entrance ways to accommodate people with disabilities. These changes will be made at the Riverside and Parkside apartments in Haverstraw.

The developer also promised to make four Westchester rental complexes, which are currently under development, easily accesible for the disabled.

Those who feel they were treated unfairly due to the original designs may be entitled to compensation under the new settlement.
