3500 Park Avenue

Bronx, New York

The Bridge, a nonprofit organization dedicated to mental health and housing, is developing this seven-story, 115-unit affordable and supportive housing building at 3500 Park Avenue in the Claremont Village neighborhood of the Bronx. This is the Bridge’s second new construction collaboration with us.

The building will include 69 supportive housing units for homeless and disabled veterans, homeless and disabled seniors, and chronically homeless people with mental illnesses. The 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. We designed significant 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 will promote safety and security, and the amenities will affirm the residents’ dignity and foster pride in where they live.
