Doe Fund Receives TCO on Bronx Affordable Development

The Doe Fund has received a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy for its new affordable and supportive housing residence at 1325 Jerome Ave. in the Bronx, which will serve formerly homeless individuals as well as individuals and households from the New York City Housing Authority waitlist. Tenants will begin moving in around July 15.

At 187,000 square feet, 14 stories and 255 units, 1325 Jerome is the largest of The Doe Fund’s 11 affordable and supportive housing residences in operation and development. The residence features 82 studio units, 92 one-bedroom units, 53 two-bedroom units, 27 three-bedroom units, and one live-in superintendent unit. 

 “As New York City bounces back from the pandemic, we must ensure that the recovery is shared by everyone,” said John McDonald, EVP of real estate at The Doe Fund. “We are thrilled to be leading the way on just that by delivering 255 critically-needed affordable homes to the Bronx.”
