For 2865 Creston Avenue, also known as the Bedford Greenhouse, we are currently developing the Construction Documents for this new residential construction for Project Renewal. Bedford Greenhouse is a 118 unit, 82,725sf mixed-use supportive housing and residential building to be constructed at 2865 Creston Avenue in the Bronx.
The majority of the units are for those with mental illness. The building is designed to assist this population enter into and remain a contributing part of the broader community. This is achieved through a number of strategies, including on-site supportive services and a significant number of affordable and senior apartments into the building’s residential unit mix. In addition, the building has been laid out to encourage socialization and security including accessibility and physical activity.
The project will offer a number of amenities which further the healing potential of the building utilizing horticultural benefits and therapy.
