Construction is expected to begin in January on Melrose North, a residential development that will bring 171 units of supportive and affordable housing to 925 Courtlandt Avenue in South Bronx’s Morrisania neighborhood. In a partnership between developer Bronx Pro Group and the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), the $92 million project will be built on a vacant NYCHA waste facility site.
The NYCHA has revealed plans to significantly renovate and repair its aging portfolio of affordable housing properties in a deal valued at $271 million. Referred to as PACT, or Permanent Affordability Commitment Together, the consortium of public and private entities has committed to renovations on 16 individual buildings including 1,718 apartments throughout Manhattan.
The Regional Plan Association of New York and Peterson Rich Office, a Brooklyn-based design studio, have released an in-depth report to help the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) identify and adopt scalable design solutions for new and existing properties. Led by the founders of Peterson Rich Office, the core focus of the research focuses on the creation of healthier homes for the 600,000 New Yorkers who live in NYCHA apartments.
