Gary Tarnoff of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP has filed applications to build a new long term care facility, called The Hebrew Home of Riverdale, to be located at 5701-5961 Palisade Avenue in The Bronx, likely on behalf of the institution. The plans to construct a new center to the north of the existing facility show it would contain 137 nonprofit residential units for the elderly, 105 assisted living units, 607 skilled nursing beds, and 386 independent senior living units. The project will also come with 509 new parking spaces, with its entire scope clocking in at 1.4 million square feet.
The plans seek certification to restore the current Hebrew Home campus, and also ask for the demolition of several buildings to make way for three new structures.
The three new buildings will have a combined gross square footage of 637,154 square feet. One will stand around 123 feet tall, with eleven stories containing a gross floor area of 432,355 square feet. The other two structures, a 41-foot three-story building and a 79-foot five-story building, will contain 204,799 square feet combined. Mechanical bulkheads on the roofs would extend the physical height by about 17 feet. Landscaping surrounding the buildings will cover about 514,000 square feet.
The project is expected to be built in a single phase and be complete in 2024.
