After a commitment from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to build more supportive housing, a colorful new 90,000-sf residential center opened this week in South Bronx.

Designed by New York’s Alexander Gorlin Architects, the Boston Road building has affordable apartments reserved for formerly homeless individuals, along with seniors, MediCaid users, and people living with HIV/AIDS, according to Curbed New York.

Dezeen reports that the building, named after its adjacent street, is meant for single working adults who earn between $18,000 and $35,280 a year.

The 12-story Boston Road has 154 rental units, all of which are 300-sf studios. Shared amenities for residents, including a patio, garden, roof terrace, and computer lab. The exterior is comprised of charcoal gray brick with red, orange, yellow, and blue aluminum panels in between windows.

Alexander Gorlin Architects also recently designed affordable housing for East New York in Brooklyn.
