Located just a few blocks from Yankee Stadium, this affordable housing project with a beautiful shared courtyard is truly unique, as it was developed on one of the last vacant city-owned lots. Applications are now being accepted for one- and two-bedroom rentals at 12 East Clarke Place and 27 East 169 Street in the Highbridge section of the Bronx, including $963/month one-bedrooms and $1,166/month two-bedrooms.
The 100,000 square-foot complex combines two brand new buildings that share a parking lot and a landscaped open space. The mixed-use building at 12 East Clarke Place rises 11 stories and contains 73 units. At East 169th Street, find 33 units in a 13-story residential building. The artful facade on the buildings contain red, brown and beige brick, and the interior of the units feature high-quality bamboo flooring, ceramic tiles and custom wood cabinets.
The building was designed by RKTB, an award-winning architect firm known for transforming vacant lots into affordable housing. Unlike a lot of affordable housing projects, these buildings boast large windows that let natural light brighten the living spaces. Plus, it’s one of the first buildings to comply with the Green Communities Criteria requirements and its energy consumption is monitored. The units’ shared courtyard provides a clean and safe outdoor space. Other amenities of the building include a parking garage, a shared recreation room, a community facility space and in-unit laundry facilities.
