Of special note, since the land is owned by NYCHA, there is a preference for 25% of the available units to go to current NYCHA residents. 50% for residents of Bronx Community Board 2, and 5% for New York City employees. 5% of units have been set aside for individuals with mobility issues, and 2% for those with hearing or visual impairments.

Amenities at The Bryant include a doorman, security guard, energy-efficient appliance (not sure if you can call such appliances an amenity at this point in time given that that’s simply just standard), shared laundry room, bike storage room, air-conditioning, media room, community room, children’s playroom, and even a library.

The remainder of the units in the development are for supportive housing for the formerly homeless and people with disabilities with on-site support services available to these residents.

As for transportation, there are several buses in the immediate area and the 6 train is available at Whitlock Avenue or the 2 and 5 line at nearby Simpson Street.

Future residents will have access to excellent outdoor areas along the Bronx River at Concrete Plant Park just 3 blocks away and Starlight Park to the north filled with plenty of opportunity for active and passive recreation along New York City’s only fresh-water river.
