In Hunts Point in the Bronx, a unique approach to development currently under construction will soon bring much-needed affordable rental options to this residential-industrial neighborhood. 

The 102,000-square-foot residence which recently topped out at 700 Manida Street will offer 108 studio and one-, two- and three-bedroom affordable units, with 48 reserved for seniors.

The inclusion of senior living units makes the project unusual. The project is being completed under the Affordable Independent Residences for Seniors program, which allows for increases in density when set-asides for seniors are part of the program.

Senior and affordable units are distributed throughout the entire building, rather than having separate areas for each. The design includes a landscaped yard, with spaces designated for active play and for quiet activities, as well as street-level community facility space for uses such as doctor’s offices, after-school programs, or daycare.
