It’s no wonder the city has spent the better part of the past decade trying to redevelop the former Kingsbridge Armory into the country’s largest ice skating complex–it’s less than a block from the 4 train and three blocks from the D and B trains and a quick walk to the Fordham University campus. And for residents moving into the area, it’s just a few blocks from the large Jerome Park, St. James Park, and Poe Park. With all this in mind, a new development has sprung up across from the Armory at 2700 Jerome Avenue. The 13-story, 134-unit building is a mix of affordable and supportive housing and retail, and as of today, New Yorkers who earn 60 or 90 percent of the median income can apply for 95 units that fall into the first category. The available apartments range from $860/month studios to $1,940/month three-bedrooms.

The building was designed by MHG Architects for developer B&B Urban. It offers a 24-hour attended lobby, on-site resident manager, landscaped community courtyard, fitness room, community and computer room, bicycle storage, and on-site laundry facility.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 2700 Jerome Avenue until November 16, 2018. Fifty percent of units are reserved for members of Bronx Community Board 7. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
