SGVA was invited to propose an affordable senior housing development located on the existing campus in the Bronx. Our proposed 160,000 sf building offers 194 units of new independent senior housing, a health center, pharmacy, meeting spaces for residents and community members and office space for a neighborhood nonprofit. A landscaped plaza and gardens provide connections between buildings and the neighborhood, and sustainability features encourage water and consumer waste recycling throughout the building. The development works with the site’s existing conditions to create a building that is both functional and cost-effective, while creating an uplifting and welcoming presence for its residents and neighbors.
