The $73 million Sugar Hill project proposed by Broadway Housing Communities, an affordable-housing nonprofit founded by Ellen Baxter '75, would create Harlem's first mixed-use development comprising affordable housing, and educational and cultural offerings.

In the Wall Street Journal article "Building an Old Legacy," Baxter explains that Sugar Hill will "create a 21st-century Settlement House where we can extend a helping hand to newcomers and create a healthy neighborhood for all the children and families that live there."

Broadway Housing's leadership team also includes Mary Ann Villari '75.
