Intervale Green and Louis Nine House as seen from the subway
We are proud to announce that our project Intervale Green and Louis Nine House has received the 2012 Affordable Housing Development of the Year Award from the Association for Neighborhood Housing Development (ANHD). We are proud to support our client, the Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation (WHEDco), who provides sustainable and affordable homes as well as numerous support services to the South Bronx community.
The two buildings that comprise the project provide much-needed housing in this once-blighted area. Intervale Green, a mixed-use, seven-story, 128-unit residential apartment building, accommodates low to moderate-income families; the adjacent Louis Nine House, a four-story, 46-unit building, provides housing and care for young adults emerging from the foster care system.
