Construction has wrapped on an affordable housing project at 1561 Walton Avenue, in The Bronx’s Concourse neighborhood. The 11-story building was a joint development by the Briarwood Organization and the Settlement Housing Fund (SHF), to create 59 affordable apartments for people with an income of 40% to 90% relative to the Area Median Income. The building was designed with the goal of fostering community within open spaces. Briarwood is also responsible for general contracting, while SHF is responsible for development.
The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) have launched a request for expressions of interest (RFEI) for the 158,000-square-foot development site at 65 East 149th Street, located in the South Bronx’s Lower Concourse section. The hope is for a development team to propose a mixed-use building with an assortment of affordable residential units, commercial space, and community facilities, DNAinfo reported. In addition, there will have to be public open space, which will hopefully be in the form of a waterfront esplanade (the site fronts the Harlem River). Infrastructure upgrades are also part of the project. The vacant site is located five blocks from the 149th Street-Grand Concourse stop on the 2 and 5 trains. Responses are due by October 11.
