About this Project
3500 Park Avenue Apartments creates supportive housing in the Claremont Village section of the Bronx, New York City. Quality resident life is created with “design features that promote safety and security, and amenities that affirm their dignity and foster pride in where they live.” – New York Housing Conference. INTUS double pane casement windows help with safety and security through our NYC-approved limiters and three point locking system. Our storefronts let daylight flood in and give views of the surrounding area which is essential to achieve a sense of community in multi-family buildings.
Beyond energy efficient windows, this affordable development will have solar roof panels for on-site energy regeneration, and utility sub-metering will pass along savings to residents. Energy Star appliances will be installed in the building to reduce energy usage, while triple-pane windows will satisfy noise reduction requirements. Building amenities will include 24/7 front desk coverage, two elevators, a multi-purpose room with a warming kitchen, a laundry room, computer lab, a playroom and outdoor recreational space with access to a community garden and a walking path.
The apartment building is designed for integrated supportive and affordable housing. The units will be for homeless veterans with disabilities, chronically homeless adults with mental illness, frail or disabled homeless seniors, and low-income seniors and families living at or below 60% of area median income. On-site case managers will focus on recovery and self-reliance and the project will support resident involvement and community building with participation in tenant committees, cooking and nutritional programs, and gardening clubs.
