Located on the corner of Pitt and Houston Streets on the Lower East Side, this 12-story building is both a design standout and a seamless addition to a dynamic neighborhood. The Lee is home to a mix of homeless adults with special needs (HIV/AIDS, chronic mental illness), low-income workers, many of whom are from the community, and 55 young adults who were at high risk of homelessness at the time they aged out of the foster care system.
Many tenants make use of extensive bike storage in the courtyard, riding to the store, to the subway, or in neighboring Hamilton Fish Park, and blending in with the long-time locals, immigrant newcomers and trendy hipsters who make the neighborhood what it is today.
