491 East 165th Street is a 10-story residence with a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom apartments, totaling 58 units located in the Melrose neighborhood of the Bronx. The project was developed by WellLife Network and CSD Housing with funding from NYS OMH. Building amenities include a lounge, recreation room, laundry space, and counseling offices. A sunken courtyard brings light into the cellar and leads to generously landscaped gardens at the rear.
The narrow site, just 50 feet wide, required a poured-in-place concrete structure in order to meet seismic forces while consuming the least amount of usable space. The façade is punctuated by ample windows and elegantly combines brick and stucco, with metal accent panels to reflect the industrial vernacular of the neighborhood.
