Construction is close to topping out at Second Farms, a new 15-story affordable housing development at 1932 Bryant Avenue in the West Farms neighborhood of The Bronx. With ardent support from local officials and community members, the project is part of a major redevelopment plan from the Archdiocese of New York City to modernize and reinvigorate West Farms, including the creation of up to 2,000 affordable and low-income housing properties.
Second Farms is expected to welcome residents by 2020, and will comprise over 314,000 square feet of total space with 319 rent-stabilized, affordable apartments, 12,000 square feet of retail, and a 9,000-square-foot community facility. Residential amenity spaces will include co-working space, bike storage, and a landscaped courtyard.
The project team recently celebrated the progress of construction, which is reportedly on-schedule for delivery next year.
