The Bryant, a 62-unit affordable and supportive housing development in the Bronx, will include 37 units reserved for families coming from New York City’s domestic violence shelters. Services for families who are homeless due to domestic violence will also be included.

The Bryant features several spaces for shared use including a multipurpose room for resident meetings and events, a children’s room, a landscaped backyard with a children’s play area, a laundry room, and a library overlooking a green roof. All the units include large windows for abundant natural light.
