Doe Fund Receives TCO on Bronx Affordable/Supportive Project 

The Doe Fund has received a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy for its newest residence, 980 Westchester Ave. The $71.6-million joint venture with Bolivar Development brings 151 new affordable and supportive units to the Foxhurst neighborhood of the Bronx.  

Also known as Tiffany Court Plaza, the seven-story, 150,000-square-foot building was designed by GF55 Partners. The development seeks to obtain LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. 

Tiffany Court Plaza’s cellar and first floor features 25,000 square feet of commercial space managed separately from The Doe Fund. The remaining six floors contain 47 studios, 64 one-bedroom units, 22 two-bedroom units, and 17 three-bedroom units, along with a two-bedroom unit for a live-in superintendent.  

The Doe Fund will provide supportive services to 31 units, including substance abuse counseling, comprehensive case management, career training, and continuing education. Residents for these units will come from NYC’s Health and Resource Administration client referral system.
