Permits have been filed for a six-story community facility at 2064 Boston Road, in The Bronx’s West Farms neighborhood. The site is close to the Bronx River, and surrounded by green space, which runs through the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Garden. The West Farms Square-East Tremont Avenue Subway Station is two blocks away, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains.
Comunilife is responsible for developing the project. The company is a charitable business focused on providing culturally competent health and human services by means of affordable and supportive housing for a variety of at-risk communities.
The 60-foot tall structure would yield 47,470 square feet of space. Tenants will have access to offices, laundry, a lounge, computer lab, front desk and community room on the first floor and cellar. The remaining space is dedicated to 78 non-profit institution residencies, averaging 510 square feet apiece.
Manhattan-based OCV Architects will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits were filed mid-October. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
