The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HDP), HELP USA, the state’s Homes and Community Renewal, and Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) are the developers. Some of the same developers are also building the affordable senior residential project planned at 110 St. Edwards Street, in Fort Greene. That 145-unit building is set to be the nation’s largest LGBT senior housing development. As for Crotona Senior Residences, construction is expected to be complete by 2019.

  1. We should not divide type of gender, everyone has a chances of life to live.

    When will someone build a building for seniors with one large bedroom and one large living room with enough closet space to live a quality of life fitting for the elderly in the west side of the Bronx. Marble Hill, AFFORDABLE for those that received pensions from the City, State and Federal governments, but do not qualify for any of the buildings sponsored by HPD because our pensions are from $50K to 76K. Come on we want a nice place also. Why does this city treat their seniors so bad when it comes to HOUSING?
