“Solutions for Socializing Seniors”: MAP breaks ground on low-income LGBT senior housing


“Magnusson Architecture and Planning (MAP) broke ground on HELP Crotona Senior Housing, the first subsidized housing development specifically for low-income LGBT seniors in New York City. Located in the Crotona section of the Bronx, the design for the nearly 83,000-square-foot, seven-story residence provides a comprehensive strategy for aging in place. The ground floor includes a space to provide basic medical services to the residents and a 9,000-square-foot community space run by SAGE USA. A landscaped roof terrace hosts additional space for socializing. Developed by HELP USA, a national non-profit developer of affordable and supportive housing, the project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2019.”
