A Magnusson Architecture and Planning-designed mixed-use development addressed as 2050 Grand Concourse recently topped out in the Bronx’s Fordham Heights neighborhood. Developed by New York-based nonprofit Unique People Services and Robert Sanborn Development, the 13-story, 86,195-square-foot structure will have affordable housing and community facility space.

The building will offer 96 units in a mix of 63 studios, 26 one-bedrooms, and seven two-bedroom apartments. Residents will be able to receive supportive services provided by Unique People Services.

“We are appreciative of our tremendous group of funders for helping us make this building a reality and gratified by the way the community has received us,” said Yvette Brissette-Andre, executive director of Unique People Services. “We are excited about the future here at 2050 GC and look forward to welcoming its new residents and community members for essential programs and services.”

2050 Grand Concourse is slated to achieve LEED Platinum certification, designed with sustainable tools to improve energy efficiency, reduce the building’s carbon footprint, control water usage, generate on-site power, and ensure resiliency. Bright Power will be implementing solar photovoltaic system, as well as electric heat pumps for both heating and cooling and a green roof. Residences will have electric stoves, high-efficiency UPVC windows, LED lighting, Energy-Star appliances, and low-flow plumbing fixtures.

Amenities include on-site laundry, a landscaped outdoor terrace, and a community room on the top floor with two roof decks. The building will also house the relocated headquarters of Unique People Services in the 10,000-square-foot community facility space on the lower floors. The space will also offer community amenities to the neighborhood as well as organizations, ranging from free Wi-Fi and event space to conferences and training.

The facade of 2050 Grand Concourse will include brick and metal elements, as well detailing on corner windows and geometric forms inspired by the Art Deco era.

2050 Grand Concourse is on track to be completed by early 2022.

    A non-profit that is doing the right thing. The design is very good and the construction is developed to high-efficiency standards.
    All-electric is the future for all new and renovated buildings. This is an all too rare kind of project, but proves it can be done, and done right. Bravo Bronx!

    How can I get an application for 2050 Grand Concourse

  3. Great looking building. A breath of fresh air from the insulting ambiance destroying BADALY designed turds spreading across the borough.

    On another note, for some reason this rendering shows the building sitting further forward on the lot line from its neighbor. This is not the case. This is right on the Concourse and it will be flush with the apartment building next door.

  7. So all these great buildings and yet zero parking garages to help with the overflow of people who own cars. Just makes it more frustrating to live on the Concourse. No one ever sees it as a revenue to upkeep the building.

  8. Do you accept section 8 and if so how can I apply for an apartment ?
