HARMONY COURT


Our 73-unit Morris Avenue Residence (Harmony Court) in the Bronx was first occupied in November 2004. This building houses low-income and special needs residents. Preference for the 29 low-income units went to local community residents. The building consists of 71 studio apartments, 1 leasing office and a one-bedroom apartment for the superintendent. Some of the building features include: a full commercial kitchen, 24-hour security, a meeting/dining area, counseling offices, laundry room, lounges on each floor, on-site parking, and a landscaped rear yard. The project was designed by Urban Architectural Initiatives (UAI) and built by Lettire Construction. Financing came from the City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), funds from the sale of low-income housing tax credits and an Affordable Housing Program grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank in cooperation with HSBC Bank. All tenants must be at or below 50% of median income. Program funds for the 43 special needs units are provided by the NYC Department of Mental Health and Department of Homeless Services.
