The Atrium and Casa Celina housing projects begin in New York

Two senior housing construction projects in New York, the Atrium and Casa Celina, both valued at US$113 million and US$132 million have officially been finalized by the New York City Housing Authority, the New York Housing Development Corporation, and the New York Department of Housing Preservation and Development. This means that both the projects have the green light for construction and will be going forward to do so. The Atrium at Sumner is a 190-unit building that will be constructed on Bedford-Stuyvesant while the Casa Celina will be constructed on a vacant parking lot site at the NYCHA’s Justice Sonia Sotomayor campus, New York.

The Atrium and Casa Celina housing projects

The Atrium at Sumner in NYCHA’s Sumner Houses campus in Brooklyn will feature 59 one-bedroom apartments, 130 studio apartments, as well as one two-bedroom superintendent apartment, with 57 apartments set aside for homeless seniors and the remaining 132 apartments available to households earning at or below 50 percent of Area Median Income. Priority will be given to NYCHA residents for 33 of the apartments. The 11-story building is organized around a central atrium with corridors overlooking a year-round indoor garden on the ground floor.

The Casa Celina in the Bronx will have 46 one-bedroom apartments, 158 studio apartments, one two-bedroom unit for a live-in superintendent, 62 apartments will be set aside for homeless seniors. The remaining 142 apartments are available to households earning at or below 50 percent area median income. 36 of the apartments at Casa Celina will be given priority over to the NYCHA residents. Residential amenities will include a fitness center, communal lounge areas, a landscaped roof terrace, and a laundry room. Additionally, a vertical network of social spaces has been created through the bright resident lounges. This helps to prevent isolation for residents living alone.
