St. Mary's

NYS Department of Social services - Bronx, new york


A new 41- unit supported housing project for formerly homeless, HIV- positive individuals is located in the Bronx next to St. Mary's Park. This six-story project built of block and plank construction demonstrates that special needs housing can be both attractive and affordable.

The building is designed to take full advantage of its park setting and includes a common room on each floor which overlooks St. Mary's Park. Dining, social services and administrative functions are housed on the ground floor to serve the building residents.

Wormser + Associates served as the development consultant as well as the architect on this project, providing site selection, financial, and tax credit services required to ensure the success of this public/private partnership.
