​Douglaston Development recently debuted an 18,000-square-foot medical facility at Crossroads Plaza, a mixed-use affordable housing development in The Bronx. The property is located at 828 East 149th Street in Mott Haven and will be operated by Essen Health Care.

The other two buildings within the Crossroads Plaza complex are located at 501 Southern Boulevard and 535 Union Avenue. With limited urgent-care, medical, and dental facilities in the area, Essen’s new ground-floor space offers a much-needed resource to Crossroads Plaza residents and the surrounding community.

“Essen Health Care’s new facility completes the last phase of the Crossroads Plaza development and we’re thrilled to see this final piece of the project come to fruition,” said Jed Resnick, CEO at Douglaston Development. “Crossroads Plaza not only provides the Bronx community with a broad range of affordable housing options, but simultaneously serves the community with early childhood education, social services, and now healthcare as well.”

The Crossroads Plaza community comprises 425 affordable housing units, all of which are restricted to individuals and households at 40 percent to 130 percent area median income.

Additional components include 60,000 square feet of retail space, a 160-vehicle parking garage, a 20,000-square-foot public plaza, and a children’s playground. The commercial spaces will be occupied by a Universal Pre-Kindergarten program and social service facilities run by The Foundling, which services families with young children.

The complex was completed in collaboration with the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development and the New York City Housing Development Corporation.
