The Doe Fund is set to break ground on 98 units of affordable and supportive housing in the Wakefield section of the Bronx

Doe Fund Readies Affordable Project in Bronx’s Wakefield Section 

The Doe Fund is slated to break ground May 25 on its new multifamily development at 4519 White Plains Rd. in the Bronx’s Wakefield neighborhood. Known as the Plains, the $48.5-million, nine-story residence will provide 98 affordable homes, with supportive services for 49 formerly homeless adults and 20 apartments reserved for adults 62 and older.  

The 82,465-square-foot building, designed by OCV Architects, is the second joint venture The Doe Fund has undertaken with Robert Sanborn Development. Upon completion, the project will seek LEED Gold certification. 

“I’m proud to have overseen the growth of The Doe Fund’s transitional, affordable, and supportive housing portfolio to over one million square feet,” said John McDonald, EVP of housing. “When completed, the Plains will join this essential continuum of care, providing high quality homes to 98 of our fellow New Yorkers most in need, as well as their families.”
