Silverleaf Hall

Silverleaf Hall is a 118-unit, 130,000 SF apartment building developed by The Lantern Group. 

The units are for low-income families earning below 60% of Area Median Income. 35 of the units, scattered throughout the building, are reserved for homeless families that have been recommended for permanent housing by the New York City Homeless Shelters. More than 50% of Silverleaf’s tenants are from the surrounding Tremont neighborhood of the Bronx.

Similar to the buildings of the Central Park West Historic District, an enhancement of Silverleaf Hall’s  historical elements was a consideration throughout the project.  A reinvented, prefabricated mansard roof with dormers was designed for a French chateau feel which stands out with the unique selection of brick and cast stone custom materials.  In addition to the mansard roof, the landscape, canopy, high-quality finishes, and other design details provide a sense of welcome and pride for tenants.
