Robert A.M. Stern Architects has been tapped to design a for-sale housing development reserved for low-income families in the Bronx, reports 6sqft.

The project, which is being developed by a team that includes Habitat for Humanity, Camber Property Group, Almat Urban, and Interboro Community Land Trust, is slated for a currently vacant site at 1640-1642 Anthony Avenue - directly across the street from Claremont Park.  The proposed eight-story building would feature 40 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, each featuring a balcony and a washer-dryer set.

6sqft reports that the project will be priced at a level considered affordable to a family of three earning up to $93,000 per year.

The housing would be accompanied by common amenities including a community room, a rear yard, a gym, and educational courses and assistance programs for residents.

News of the new Bronx project comes just a month after another RAMSA-designed affordable housing complex opened for residents in Brooklyn.  That project, called Edwin's Places, features 125 income-restricted apartments.
