In 2017, as part of HPD’s M/WBE Building Opportunity RFP, Type A was designated a 15,000 square foot site in the East Crotona neighborhood of the Bronx. The project will include approximately 113 rental units for senior-headed households earning up to 60% AMI and ample amenity spaces including a community room, library, ground floor lounge, gym, and over 7,500 square feet of landscaped outdoor space. The Jewish Association Serving the Aging will offer tenant support services and access to their extensive city-wide senior programs. The LGBT Network intends to open the Bronx’s only bricks and mortar LGBT community center on the ground floor.
This project is currently slated for occupancy in 2020.
