Want to own an amazing, affordable home in Kingston? Consider becoming a Kingston City Land Bank (KCLB) homeowner!
The KCLB is excited to announce the sale of our latest newly renovated and affordable home, located at 149 Greenkill Avenue! This fully rehabbed 3-bedroom, 1-bath home features a new kitchen, bathroom and large, private backyard. We commenced renovations late last year and expect to complete construction in July.
“After many years of vacancy and neglect, we are thrilled to add 149 Greenkill to the list of comprehensively and beautifully renovated homes that the KCLB has returned to our community,” says Daniel Kanter, Board Chair of the KCLB. “This home is classic Kingston through-and-through, and no detail has been overlooked by our design team or our incredible crew from Maeda Contracting. It’s ready for its next 100 years and beyond.”
“We are excited to bring this opportunity to our community,” says Minya DeJohnette, Chair of the KCLB’s Communications & Community Engagement Committee. “Our marketing campaign will include direct outreach via local businesses, houses of worship and community events. We look forward to meeting everyone and discussing our work in person!”
This is the 4th home in our Affordable Homeownership PILOT program. Launched in 2020, the program is designed to purchase vacant properties from the City of Kingston for the full price of back taxes and transform them into the most well-designed affordable homes in our community! Selling properties this way is one of 4 Pathways we use to return properties to the tax rolls.
The household and income limits to purchase can be found in English and Spanish HERE. To take a virtual tour of the home as we near construction completion, check it out below!
