UPDATE, 2:08 p.m., September 4: Unique People Services, a nonprofit organization focused on supportive housing, plans to create a 93-unit project in the Bronx.
The organization on Wednesday filed plans with the city’s buildings department for the 13-story, 135-foot project at 2050 Grand Concourse in Mount Hope. The building will cover approximately 64,000 square feet, divided between 62,000 square feet of residential space and 2,000 square feet of community space. The property is currently a vacant lot.
Housing in the development will be for low to moderate income households and former homeless people with special needs, according to Unique People Services. The project will be divided between 55 supervised housing for single adults, 23 housing for low-income households, 14 housing for low-income households and one superintendent’s housing.
The nonprofit has 27 supportive housing programs in New York and Westchester focused on helping former homeless people and people with developmental disabilities, according to its website.
Other projects en route to the Bronx include a 152-unit non-profit Breaking Ground residential building at 448 East 143rd Street and a 255-unit residential project by developer Peter Fine at 1331 Jerome Avenue.
