3500 Park Avenue

Bronx, New York

Development is recently complete at our latest collaboration with The Bridge, a nonprofit organization dedicated to mental health and housing. Located in the Claremont Village neighborhood of the Bronx, the new construction is seven-stories with 115-unit affordable and supportive housing building. 

The building provides 69 supportive housing units for homeless and disabled veterans, homeless and disabled seniors, and chronically homeless people with mental illnesses. Remaining units are standard affordable housing for households living at or below 60 percent of area median income. The program provides onsite case managers and services related to health, recovery, and self-reliance.

Significant design attention was given to common and shared spaces, including a generous lobby, sitting area, and activity room on the first floor which opens directly onto a landscaped garden shared by all residents. The building’s design features promote safety, wellness and security. Overall, the amenities will affirm the residents’ dignity and foster pride in their homes.
