Permits have been approved for a new ten-story senior housing building at 105 West Tremont Avenue in The Bronx. Designed by SB+C Architecture D.P.C, 105 West Tremont Avenue is one of three properties to be developed as part of the wider regeneration of Morris Heights. Developer Crown Holdings have teamed up with The Community Builders – America’s largest affordable housing operator - to bring state-of-the-art retirement and social services facilities to the area.
Located at the corner of Grand Avenue, the proposed 55,000 square foot, 100-foot-tall development provides 95 much needed Affordable Independent Residences for Seniors (AIRS). The project is designed to support ageing-in-place with fully adaptable apartments and the integration of handrails in all corridors, bright lighting, and color-defined wayfinding. There will also be double the required number of fully accessible and designed hearing and vision-impaired units. Residents will enjoy access to a range of amenities onsite which include community and recreation spaces, 24-hour reception, bicycle storage, laundry service and consultation rooms.
