This new 7-story, 83,000sf senior housing project will provide 83 units of low-income affordable housing to LGBT seniors in the Crotona neighborhood of the Bronx, NY. It is one of New York City's first subsidized housing developments that will specifically create a community for LGBT Seniors; a Senior Center run by HELP USA will provide services and support with a focus on LGBT resources. A key design driver of the development overall, is the creation of space which provides a comprehensive strategy for aging in place.
HELP Crotona Senior Housing will consist of 55 studios and 28 one-bedrooms. The ground floor will include a space for providing basic medical services to the residents and a 9,000 square foot community space.
