Affordable, Energy Efficient Senior Housing Going In

Yesterday, CPC Resources broke ground at its forthcoming energy-efficient affordable senior housing complex in East New York. It’s called the Redwood Senior Housing and is going up at the intersection of Wortman and Schenck avenues. The seven-story building will hold 80 one- and two-bedroom rental units of affordable housing with social services for underserved elderly residents. The amenities include a community room, a library and computer room, parking, a landscaped seating area, and raised garden beds. The building, designed by Peter Franzese, will also include an energy efficient boiler, efficient lighting, Energy Star appliances, and low-flow water fixtures. This site was formerly a parking facility owned by the New York City Housing Authority. Now that construction’s moving along, the building should look like the rendering above by 2014. GMAP
