An 84-unit Multi-family Development Opens in the Crotona Park East Neighborhood of the Bronx 


 The NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), The NYC Housing Development Corporation (HDC), The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), and NYS Department of Homes & Community Renewal (DHCR) were recently joined by MacQuesten Development and the Union Grove Baptist Church to celebrate the grand opening of the Reverend Dr. Fletcher C. Crawford Apartments, an 84-unit low-income development in the Crotona Park East neighborhood of The Bronx, located at 1468 Hoe Avenue.

The completion of this development is a positive step for quality permanent rental housing for working families in the Bronx," said Rella Fogliano, President of MacQuesten Development, LLC. "During this project, we provided much needed construction jobs and vital skill development to local residents for future employment opportunities.
The Rev. Dr. Fletcher C. Crawford Apartments were created under the Bloomberg Administration’s New Housing Marketplace Plan.  The plan, launched by Mayor Bloomberg in 2003, is a multibillion dollar initiative to finance 165,000 units of affordable housing for half a million New Yorkers by the close of the 2014 fiscal year.

The development is an 82,891 square-foot, eight-story masonry elevator building, constructed on formerly City-owned land that was conveyed by NYCHA to the developer. The building includes seven studio units, 29 one-bedroom units, 40 two-bedroom units, seven three-bedroom units and one superintendent unit.  Seven of the apartments have been set aside for people with impaired mobility, hearing and vision. Additionally, 20% of the units were set aside for formerly homeless households.  Another 25% of the units have been reserved for households referred to by the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) from its waitlist.  The 84 units are affordable to tenants who earn less than 60% of Area Median Income (AMI) or what is equivalent to not more than$46,080 (for a family of four).
