The Bedford is a $22 million, 10-story, 60-unit affordable housing building in the Norwood section of Bronx.
Located at 3160 Webster Avenue, right alongside Bronx Park and just a quick walk to both the New York Botanical Garden/Bronx Zoo and Woodlawn Cemetery/Van Cortlandt Park, the project offers a small number of units for formerly homeless New Yorkers and 50 apartments reserved for those earning 50, 60, and 80 percent of the area median income. Applications are now being accepted through the city’s affordable housing lottery for this larger group, which range from $734/studios to $1,745/month three-bedrooms.
Go-to affordable housing designers Aufgang Architects are behind the project, and amenities include bike storage, a roof deck, and a laundry room. The ground floor has 10,000 square feet of glass-faced retail space, which is part of a larger initiative to transform Webster Avenue in a more vibrant streetscape following a 2009 rezoning of 80 blocks along the street.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 3160 Webster Avenue until May 5, 2017. Residents of Bronx Community Board 7 will be given preference for 50 percent of the units. 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.
