Southbridge Towers is a limited equity housing cooperative built under the Mitchell-Lama Housing Program and completed in 1969. The complex is located in Lower Manhattan in New York City south of the entrance ramp to the Brooklyn Bridge and is bound by Pearl Street, Frankfort Street, Gold Street, and Fulton Street. It has 1,651 apartments in four 27 story tower blocks and six low-rise buildings.
It is a classic example of a naturally occurring retirement community (NORC).
In October 2005, the cooperative's board of directors voted to undertake a study that could cost up to $25,000 to explore privatization of the building complex.
