YONKERS, NY Architect Fernando Villa AIA LEED of Magnusson Architecture and Planning PC (MAP), the principal-in-charge for Ludlow Commons, celebrated the ribbon-cutting with Lee Lasberg, owner of Lasberg Construction, the contractor; Richard Nightingale, president & CEO of Westhab, the developer; James McCormack, also from Lasberg Construction; and Steve Elson, also from Westhab.

The ribbon-cutting marked the moving-in of tenants at Ludlow Commons, an eight-story, 71-unit building at 7 Ludlow St. The $19 million project is believed to be one of the last affordable senior housing developments funded under HUD’s 59-year-old Section 202 program, according to Villa. 

Founded in 1986, MAP has pioneered outstanding building design and urban revitalization projects as the foundation for vibrant and sustainable communities.
