15 Dec Moving One Step Closer to Lynn’s Place’s 2017 Opening
It’s been a busy autumn at 1060 Rev. James A. Polite Avenue in the Bronx, where construction crews have been hard at work building Unique People Services’ first affordable housing complex, the next phase of our Continuum of Care and an exciting new chapter in our 25-year history.
Here’s just a sample of the project’s outstanding progress, as we inch closer to transforming the lives of low income New Yorkers and mentally challenged individuals who will soon call Lynn’s Place home:
- The building’s brick veneer, front façade window units and rear courtyard facades are installed and in place;
- Apartment unit framing is nearing completion;
- Insulation continues throughout the building, as well as waterproofing on the roof;
- Elevator installation remains ongoing, including rails and platform/cab construction.
With the opening of Lynn’s Place less than one year away, we’re extremely grateful to everyone who has helped make this important initiative possible. During a time when housing costs continue to rise, the need for affordable housing is stronger than ever. Knowing our agency will be instrumental in meeting a vital need in this city ends the year on a particularly high note for Unique People Services. We can’t wait for the wonderful things that lie ahead in the New Year!
