Belmont affordable housing will cater to seniors by going greenPosted: Updated:
The Bronx will be home to another affordable housing development catering to seniors.
A nine-story building with 177 affordable housing units for seniors currently living in the Bronx will be built on a vacant lot in Belmont. About 30 percent will be set aside for those who are homeless or medically frail.
The $91 million project is a collaboration between Foxy Management and the Hebrew Home at Riverdale. The building will integrate nature into it with a green wall, roof, indoor greenhouse and much more, giving the residents the opportunity to grow their own vegetables since there will be a heavy focus on healthy eating.
The Hebrew Home is receiving a $500,000 grant from City Council member Rafael Salamanca Jr. to help provide aid in the new building like case management services, nursing services and activity programs.
The development is expected to be completed in January 2021.
