No Parking at 167-Unit Seniors Property

A new seniors development in Bronx, NY won’t need to include parking spaces, thanks to a provision of New York City’s new Zoning for Quality and Affordability rule.

“With 1880 Boston Rd., we are seeing the promise of ZQA — the most significant zoning overhaul in 55 years — bear fruit,” said Maria Torres-Springer, commissioner of the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development. “This innovative new development will create 167 affordable apartments for extremely-low income seniors, at less cost and in less time because of the flexibility achieved through ZQA.”

Construction began Feb. 10 on a plan to add eight new stories of seniors apartments to the existing building, which is currently occupied by a health and wellness center.
