In the Soundview neighborhood of the Bronx, the Arker Companies has commenced the affordable housing lottery process for their latest ground-up building, Colgate Close. Located at 1092 Colgate Street, where the semi-industrial area along the Bronx River evolves into a low-scale residential community, the five-story complex will contain 32 studio and one-bedrooms targeted for low-income households earning between $25,200 and $30,250 for a single person and $27,052 and $41,460 for two people. Depending on income, studios will be priced at $696 or $847 per month and one-bedrooms at $749 and $910 per month.

Prolific affordable-housing designers Aufgang Architects are listed as the architects of record. Here they articulate the 250-foot-long mass into eleven alternating blocks faced with varying facade treatments that utilize mixtures of tan, red, and dark grey to elicit visual interest and break down the scale of the complex. The first floor will be tenanted by some kind of community facility and house the residential lobby, a day care with accompanying outdoor play area, a community room, a garage for 24 cars, and a bike room. The four floors above will hold 66 residential units, 18 per floor on floors two through four and 12 units on the fifth floor. The top floor will also house the building’s laundry room.

The apartment block lies directly north of the 1.9-acre Colgate Close Park, which is furnished with a sizable community garden playground, four basketball courts, and a baseball field. The park’s name and the streets bounding it have nothing to do with the company best known for its toothpaste, but rather derive from John Cloes, an early pioneer of the New York area, and James Colgate, a 19th century financier and philanthropist.
