Building strong neighborhoods with affordable housing and community programs

New Projects

The 12,000 sq. ft. development site on Webster Avenue in the Fordham Heights section of the Bronx, adjacent to NYCHA’s existing Twin Parks West housing, is scheduled to break ground in 2020. We are calling the project Twin Parks Terrace because of the three programmed terraces. Our design team, led by Danois Architects, prioritized the community visioning request to limit the height of the proposed building to the neighboring NYCHA building. Working with our sustainability consultant Bright Power, we are also fully committed to green building design and sustainability as a priority for Twin Parks Terrace. The project in partnership with Joy Construction incorporates effective sustainable design, energy efficiency strategies, and renewable energy aspects, to build healthy, livable, more comfortable and more environmentally friendly buildings. With 120 points and counting on our EGC Checklist, solar photovoltaic panels for renewable energy, active design inside and outside the building, highly efficient mechanical systems and insulation strategies, and a green jobs partnership with Sustainable South Bronx, Twin Parks Terrace is set to be a model for a cutting edge sustainable building.

1561 Walton Avenue is Settlement Housing's latest affordable housing development at New Settlement Apartments in the southwest Bronx, where we now own 18 residential buildings with 1,082 units, including 30% set aside for homeless families. The project, co-developed with The Briarwood Organization and designed by ESKW/Architects, creates 60 new units of high quality, energy efficient affordable housing for households earning from 40% to 90% of area median income, as well as for 9 homeless families, with additional outdoor and community program space. The project adds to the affordable housing stock in Mt. Eden and continues Settlement Housing Fund’s mission to create quality permanent housing for mixed income households and homeless families. 1561 Walton also launches a new affordable housing development pipeline to help meet the community’s need for deeper affordability in an area bordering the Jerome Avenue rezoning district.
