Sitting at the corner of Jerome Avenue and 176th Street in the Bronx, 1769 Jerome Avenue features 175 affordable and supportive apartments, 2,600 square feet of supportive housing offices, and 7,100 square feet of commercial and retail space. A joint venture between S:US and Bronx Pro Group, 1769 Jerome Avenue integrates itself into the site—placing the entrance in line with the iconic step street, allowing residents to come home along the pedestrian corridor.
This project replaces the former Jerome Motel, a two story building, which itself had been used for supportive services. The S:US team was able to offer relocation agreements to current residents, while more than tripling the former site's capacity in order to respond to the city's critical housing needs. Within the building, details and amenities are utilized to maximize community building and resident comfort, emphazising natural light and minimizing sound along 176th Street and above the 4 train.
