Serviam Gardens: Affordable Green Living for Bronx Seniors

Serviam Gardens, a $66 million, 240-unit affordable housing development in the Bronx, will follow the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria.

Serviam Gardens will be a 240-unit housing development for low- to middle-income senior citizens when it opens in the last quarter of 2009. Developed by Bronx-based affordable housing developer Fordham Bedford Housing Corporation, the $66 million project is set to break ground tomorrow and will rise in a vacant lot behind Mount Saint Ursula’s convent and girls’ high school in Bedford Park in the Bronx.

OCV Architects designed the two-tower project, which will incorporate a number of unspecified green design features pursuant to Enterprise Green Communities Criteria; Enterprise provided low-income tax credit financing for the project. You may recall the same Fordham Bedford/OCV team from Jacob’s Place, the 63-unit affordable rental building that opened earlier this year in the Fordham section of the Bronx.
