Bronx Housing Progress: WHEDco’s Bronx Commons

One of the borough’s most exciting housing developments had a so-called ‘topping off’ last week. Crain’s NY reported on WHEDco’s (Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation) eagerly-anticipated Bronx Commons development in the Melrose section of the Bronx.

It’s a project that’s been developed in coordination with the stated needs of the local commuity. Listening to residents is one key tactic WHEDco has used in their developments.

WHEDco was awarded the project through a competitive process. They then went to work to figure out what the area that’s been affected by the housing crisis, wage stagnation, and increasing costs of living could use the most. Through surveys and assessments, WHEDco determined that the neighborhood desperately needed affordability.

Working with the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development throughout the planning process, the 12-floor, 426,000 sq. ft. Bronx Commons will hold 305 apartments. In addition, it will feature retail, dining, a music performance venue and arts-based community center called Bronx Music Hall, a landscaped public plaza, and a green roof.
