If you’ve walked through the western Bronx recently, you may have noticed a newcomer on the skyline: the 11-story, 60-unit subsidized housing building at 1561 Walton Avenue recently achieved substantial completion. Residents have begun to move in, just in time to burrow in for what’s already proving to be a snowy winter season.
The new building is the latest addition to Settlement Housing Fund’s longstanding mission of providing quality permanent housing for mixed income and formerly homeless families.
A milestone was reached at Hour Apartment House III: the masonry scaffolding has been removed, revealing the medley of brick details that makes this building both connect to its context and stand out. The two brick colors break down the horizontal scale of this 4-story, 18-unit supportive housing building for formerly incarcerated women and their children. The entire team is thrilled with the result and excited to see the rest of the building as completion nears.
