Lynn’s Place, co-developed by Unique People Services and Sanborn Development, is a mix of 69 efficiency and two-bedroom apartments in a 7-story with cellar building. The project is located in the Foxhurst neighborhood of the Bronx and includes amenities such as a large community space, program offices in the cellar, a roof garden at the seventh floor roof terrace and a landscaped rear yard with a sunken courtyard. All units are affordable to individuals and families earning 60 percent of the area median income, with 20 efficiency apartments designated for people with a history of homelessness and mental illness.

The project implements green design features including a super insulated building envelope, photovoltaic solar panels on the roof run lighting in public halls and communal spaces and a usable green roof. The building complies with Enterprise Green Communities’ Criteria, NYSERDA’s Multifamily Performance Program and has obtained LEED for Homes Gold Certification.
