Triangle Fire Memorial Chosen; New Bronx Affordable Housing

New, 4 comments

GREENWICH VILLAGE—Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition's design competition to find a memorial for 20 Washington Place, the site of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire that claimed the lives of 146 garment workers and served as a catalyst for labor reform, has drawn to a close. The winning design, by Richard Joon Yoo and Uri Wegman, will feature "graceful steel panels that are visible from a distance." [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

BRONX—The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, The New York City Housing Development Corporation, CPC Resources, Inc., L+M Development Partners, Lemle & Wolff, The New York Housing Partnership, and New York City Housing Authority (phew!) broke ground today on Soundview Family Housing, an eight-story building with 120 unit of affordable housing in the Bronx. A second phase of the project, currently under negotiation, would provide 86 units of affordable senior housing, while a third phase would create 16 two-family market-rate townhouse.
