The Salvation Army has its sights set on East Harlem, with plans to build a gleaming new affordable senior residence atop a refurbished community center on E. 125th St.

To help pay for the project, the organization aims to sell the Williams Memorial Residence – the popular senior home it opened 45 years ago in a former hotel on the Upper West Side – for a whopping $108 million.

The proposal is already attracting dogged adversaries, but the international nonprofit insists breaking ground in El Barrio makes the most economic sense.
