A vacant lot in the far-flung southeastern Bronx neighborhood of Soundview is set to be redeveloped. The non-profit Institute for Children, Poverty and Homelessness plans to develop a six-story supportive housing project at 1600 Randall Avenue, at the edge of NYCHA’s Soundview Houses and Soundview Park.
The building would have 99 units, spread across 63,256 square feet of community facility space. The ground floor would be home to a daycare, followed by nine units, offices, a computer room, and classrooms on the second floor. Each of the remaining floors would have 30 rooms, plus laundry rooms, offices, and meeting rooms. There would also be a top-floor roof deck.
Dattner Architects would be responsible for the design.
The East Village-based organization picked up the 34,000-square-foot property for just $1,500,000 in 2013.
