Applications are now being accepted for 79 affordable units at a new residential development in the South Bronx. Located at 1007 Union Avenue in Morrisania, Victory Commons offers residents supportive services, amenities, and a church sanctuary housed within the preexisting Victory Baptist Church. New Yorkers earning 30, 50, 70, and 80 percent of the area median income, or between $17,452 annually for a single person and $132,400 for a household of seven, can apply for the units, which range from $410/month studios to $2,252/month three bedrooms.
Developed by Exact Capital and designed by Aufgang Architects, Victory Commons contains a total of 95 affordable housing units. The apartments will remain permanently affordable for low-income New Yorkers. The building will also offer supportive services for formerly homeless households.
Amenities include an on-site resident super, bike storage lockers, a shared laundry room, a recreation room, an outdoor area, a church sanctuary, and parking spaces.
Victory Commons, also known as Victory Baptist, is part of a larger mixed-use housing project that involved the redevelopment of the Victory Baptist Church and several low-rise residential buildings on the same block, according to Yimby.
Nearby public transit options include the 2, 5, and 6 subway lines as well as the Bx6, Bx6-SBS, and Bx17 buses.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until June 12, 2023. Preference for 50 percent of the units will be given to residents of Bronx Community District 3. Complete details on how to apply are available here. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
