An eight-story affordable housing project has been completed at 1422 Crotona Park East, in Crotona Park East, The Bronx. The site is right across the street from Crotona Park, which has several baseball fields, and other sports facilities. The Freeman Street Subway Station is six blocks away, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The Doe Fund, whose focus on rehabilitating people with histories of homelessness, incarceration, or substance abuse, is responsible for the development. The Briarwood Organization is responsible for the general contracting.
The 79-foot tall structure yields 33,940 square feet, dedicated to the 60 apartments within. Units average 565 square feet apiece. The permit describes each residence as a studio. Office space, a multipurpose space, and a laundry room will be made available as well.
Delacour, Ferrara & Church Architects are responsible for the design.
