Reveal For Seven-Story, 82-Unit Affordable Senior Building Planned At 775 Crotona Park North, Tremont

New York YIMBY
By Reid Wilson
Details and a rendering have been revealed for a seven-story, 82-unit affordable residential building planned at 775 Crotona Park North (a.k.a. 1784 Prospect Avenue), in the West Bronx’s Tremont section. Dubbed Crotona Senior Residences, it will comprise entirely of affordable housing geared specifically to LGBT seniors (although all elderly people, regardless of orientation, will be allowed to apply), Welcome2TheBronx reported. It will also include a supportive facility with services for residents in the building and around the community. New building applications have not yet been filed, but Magnusson Architecture and Planning is the design architect.

The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HDP), HELP USA, the state’s Homes and Community Renewal, and Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) are the developers. Some of the same developers are also building the affordable senior residential project planned at 110 St. Edwards Street, in Fort Greene. That 145-unit building is set to be the nation’s largest LGBT senior housing development. As for Crotona Senior Residences, construction is expected to be complete by 2019. HELP USA’s existing two-story facility must first be demolished.
