76,909 SF, 8 stories, 82-unit affordable/supportive housing
INTUS Double Pane Windows
Webster Green is an affordable multifamily building featuring INTUS Arcade double pane polymer windows. It’s yet another project INTUS has been worked on that is part of governor Cuomo’s statewide $29.5 million development commitment to affordable housing and community renewal.
This 76,909 SF, 8 story project will provide 82 apartments for low-income and disabled New Yorkers in Bedford Park, Bronx. “Outdoor recreation space, a community room and residence lounges will complement the high efficiency LEED certified building and foster resident engagement to help tenants achieve and maintain healthy lifestyles and self-sufficiency. On-site social, medical, and support services will help stabilize their treatment protocols and integrate residents into the community.” – MAP Architects
“On the ground floor program management offices and a large community space face Webster Avenue. An interior landscaped courtyard includes native plants and seating areas is a symbolic connection to the larger landscape system of the Bronx parks. Leveraging the corner site location, a recessed area in the massing emphasizes the main entry and creates a large alcove on each floor. Flooded with natural light, these seating areas provide public space to socialize or enjoy the view. “ – New York Housing Conference
Financing for this project was a collaborative effort. The State of New York invested more than $11 million, including a $4.5 million Medicaid Redesign Team program loan through HCR, $6.5 million in Homeless Housing Assistance Program funds through OTDA, and a $159,000 New York State Energy Research and Development Agency (NYSERDA) energy efficiency grant. The state’s $1.2 million allocation of Low Income Housing Tax Credits leveraged $12.8 million in tax credit equity. Additionally, Citi provided a $13.7 million construction loan and $1.2 million in subordinate loan funds.
“Access to safe, stable, affordable housing is critical to solving some of the most pressing challenges affecting our poorest communities— homelessness, crime, drug abuse, incarceration, and recidivism. This is about much more than building apartments, it’s about making our city and state the most equitable and inclusive place to call home. – The Doe Fund Founder and President George T. McDonald
