Bronx, New York
The Velez Organization served as the developers and builders of hundreds of units of newly constructed two and three family affordable homes. We designed a two-story, three story and four story contemporary affordable homes with a brick facade, and one or two rental units. Each of the four Bronx projects was in excess of $10 million.
These projects serve as excellent examples of the Velez Organizations ability to complete development from the design phases to the certificate of occupancy. These houses required individual connections to utility mains and the experience to know how to deal with varying site conditions while keeping the project under budget. In addition, these projects exemplify the Velez Organizations’ expertise to the permit process from design through construction. Velez Organization secured Federal and State grants and subsidies, and tax abatement programs to make these homes affordable to the residents of the Bronx in a first time homebuyer program. We worked closely with the local community in the sales process, conducted a housing lottery and assisted these first-time homebuyers in the mortgage and landlord education process. We conducted outreach meetings with local elected officials. We employed local employment in virtually all of the building trades.
