JASMINE COURT


Heritage Health and Housing's new residential projects continue to move forward. Our Jasmine Court rehabilitation project in the Bronx completed construction and went into occupancy in April, 2003. This residence contains 114 completely renovated and furnished studio apartments plus a live-in superintendent's unit. Due to extensive pre-occupancy outreach and screening, the support staff was able to lease up the building in just six weeks—an outstanding accomplishment. Jasmine Court was a cooperative effort with SoBRO, which operates the building while Heritage provides the tenant social services. Jasmine is distinguished by the quality of its finishes which include an attractive exterior stainless steel canopy, cherry wood paneling and granite floors in the lobby, chair rails in all the hallways, solid oak furniture in the apartments and a state-of-the-art security system. The building contains a TV lounge, a library, a community room, a commercial kitchen and a congregate dining room. Program funding is provided by the NYC Department of Mental Health, Department of Homeless Services, and HIV/AIDS Services Administration.
