Developed by Project Renewal, Bedford Green House is a 118-unit, 82,725-SF mixed-use, supportive housing project at 2865 Creston Avenue in the Bronx. Most of the units are dedicated to people with mental illness, although the residential unit mix also includes affordable housing and senior housing units. Through a range of strategies, including on-site supportive services, the building design facilitates residents’ long-term wellbeing, belonging and participation into the wider community. The building plan allows for accessibility and security, which in turn fosters socialization and physical activity. Bedford Green House will also offer several amenities like horticultural features and alternative therapies, which further contribute to the healing potential of the building.
