Fischer Senior Apartments Groundbreaking in the Press

On September 12, SGVA celebrated the groundbreaking of Fischer Senior Apartments, which will provide affordable and supportive housing for seniors in the Highbridge neighborhood of the Bronx, with the West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing (WSFSSH) and Procida Construction. We began work on this project after NYC HPD selected our proposal for this city-owned site in 2019.

The groundbreaking was featured in this article on New York YIMBY. Also check out this video from Bronx News 12 reporting on the celebration!

The Bronx Times published a feature as well, highlighting the building’s capacity “to meet seniors where they are” and the innovative “cluster care” design that will be piloted on two of its floors. Read the full article here.

The Housing Finance Magazine also wrote about the project in this article and noted the design’s ability to “engage the sidewalk and enhance the pedestrian experience” in addition to providing high-quality housing within.
