Organizers say 200 units are now up for grabs at 1160 River Ave. in Concourse Village. The building contains amenities like a rec room, outdoor deck, laundry room and an on-site superintendent. 
“This will allow families who are vulnerable, families who are working class the ability to live and grow in the Bronx,” said Ahmed Tigani, of the New York City Housing Preservation and Development agency. “This is an example of developers using city resources and building in a part of the Bronx… families and people can come together and spend time in a beautiful, fantastic new building.”
