The Abyssinian Neighborhood, anchored by ADC’s founding Abyssinian Baptist Church, is bounded by Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard to the west, Malcolm X Boulevard to the east, West 139th Street to the north and West 137th Street to the south. ADC’s residential development in this community is a cornerstone to its mission to “re-build Harlem, brick by brick, block by block.”

Residential Housing for Rent

Responding to the critical need for quality and affordable housing, ADC has developed more than 1,500 rental units in the Harlem Community. 100% of our rental housing stock is affordable, and reserved for low to moderate income residents. The great majority of ADC’s focus has been preventing the displacement of Harlem residents.

ADC manages one-bedroom apartments located at 2070 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd at 124th Street, and is currently developing Ennis Francis Phase II at 123rd Street, a construction project that will preserve 220 units of Section 8 affordable housing.

Applicant Eligibility

Rental applicants must currently possess a NYCHA Section 8 or HPD Section 8 Voucher in order to qualify.

Commercial Development

To address Central Harlem’s critical need for quality goods and services, ADC develops commercial space and facilitates corporate investment in the community. Most notably, ADC developed Pathmark in 1999 and Harlem Center in 2003, in conjunction with community and corporate partners. ADC has also provided dozens of Harlem’s small businesses with technical assistance and provides space for them in our mixed-use developments.
