Tiffany Court Plaza, a mixed-use building with permanent affordable and supportive housing, recently topped out in Foxhurst, The Bronx. Located at 980 Westchester Avenue, the seven-story, 155,798-square-foot structure is designed by GF55 Partners and developed by The Doe Fund and Bolivar Development.

Components of 980 Westchester Avenue include 28,000 square feet of commercial space spread across the cellar and first floor. The six upper levels will contain 150 affordable housing units in the form of 47 studios, 64 one-bedroom units, 22 two-bedroom units, and 17 three-bedroom units. An additional two-bedroom unit will be set aside for a live-in superintendent. Residential amenities include a community room, a landscaped outdoor terrace, a shared laundry room, a computer room, and bike storage. A range of affordable income levels will be served.

“This residence will provide shelter from the storm for New Yorkers struggling to escape homelessness and poverty amid the economic fallout of this pandemic, as well as those facing physical and mental disability,” said George McDonald, founder and president of The Doe Fund. “With comprehensive, onsite social services, tenants will have access to the support they need to live with dignity and stability.”

The majority of units will be filled via the Housing Connect affordable housing lottery, with 31 filled with residents coming from the city’s Health and Resource Administration client referral system. The Doe Fund will be handling supportive services for those units, including substance abuse counseling, career training, and continuing education. The organization will also be handling leasing and marketing, and the real estate arm will manage the project after completion.

The $71.4 million development has a number of public and private funding sources including NYC’s Housing Development Corporation, New York City’s Department of Housing and Preservation Development, a Federal Home Loan Bank of New York grant, and New York City Council discretionary funds from Bronx Councilman Rafael Salamanca, Jr. and City Council Speaker Corey Johnson.

Construction is expected to be completed by April 2021. Upon completion, the project will seek LEED Gold certification.

    • Can anyone read? The building is still being built. No tenant apps will be accepted till MAYBE May 2021. Best chance is through housing connect. You have to wait till they post it, likely in April or May.

  28. This is an article about the construction of this building. Why ask for an application here? They have nothing to do with the building’s management. Come on people, think!

    • It’s interesting number of people interested in these units though. I felt this one should have been much taller considering its location.

    Where i can apply for the apartments

  67. I have never seen so many requests for any other new construction like this building. I live about two blocks away. I can see the construction from my rooftop. Looking forward to the new commercial stores to come. Glad there will be housing above. They will build another building on street next to this one. Good to see new construction. It seems like best way to get a apartment is registering with Housing connect. Someone has to get lucky. It could very well be you.
