The second building within the new COOKFOX-designed, fully affordable development that’s bringing 418 affordable and supportive housing units to the Bronx is ready to start welcoming future tenants.
Nonprofit organization Breaking Ground, the city’s largest providers of supportive housing, and its partners celebrated the completion of Webster Avenue (also known as Webster Residences)—a 170-unit supportive housing building for the formerly homeless, low-income, and individuals with special needs—with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held on Tuesday morning.
In January, the affordable lottery was launched for 80 of the apartments within Webster Avenue, with rents beginning at $675/month for a studio. The first of the development’s two buildings, known as Park House, began welcoming residents in October 2017.
The two buildings are connected by a landscaped courtyard and offer amenities that include a fitness room, laundry room, recreation room, computer lab, bike storage, a green roof, and a garden area. Additionally, the development will provide on-site social services for tenants.
