Earlier this year, a new residential building opened in the Bronx that offers permanent supportive housing for those in need of health services. Breaking Ground, a nonprofit developer of supportive housing, opened Boston Road near the intersection of Boston Road and E. 168th Street in Morrisania. The 12-story building has 154 units and is nearing full occupancy. Boston Road, like other Breaking Ground developments, combines affordable housing with on-site social services.
The building was designed by Alexander Gorlin Architects and places an equal emphasis on private rooms and communal spaces. The shared areas serve as multi-purpose rooms that can be used for various social services and tenant meetings. The building's lobby has a waving ceiling, referencing the topography of the site, and leads to a ground floor that has meeting rooms, a large patio and a garden. Residents also have access to a fitness center, computer lab, laundry facilities, bike storage, and a roof terrace. Boston Road was designed for an Energy Star rating, and features a green roof, high performance boilers, low- and no-VOC finishes, and energy efficient fixtures.
As affordable housing is developed around the city, projects continue to be structured for formerly homeless individuals, and we'll hopefully soon see significant improvements for these populations, especially in low-income neighborhoods. Pursuing this mission is Breaking Ground's Boston Road, their third project in the Bronx, with more are on the way including The Sydelle (East Tremont), La Central (South Bronx), and the Park House and Webster Avenue complex (South Bronx).
An extraordinary juxtaposition. 49 Chambers is one of NYC’s most cherished landmarks; the former home of Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank. Today, this architectural icon is an artful collection of contemporary park view, 1-3 BR & Penthouse condominiums, coupled with the amenities of an urban resort. View Property
