The Doe Fund Tops Out Construction on Wakefield Affordable/Supportive Housing

The Doe Fund, a homeless services nonprofit with a portfolio of transitional, affordable and supportive housing throughout NYC, has topped out its latest real estate development at 4519 White Plains Rd. in the Bronx’s Wakefield neighborhood. The nine-story, $48.5-million joint venture, known as The Plains, is the second The Doe Fund has undertaken with Robert Sanborn Development.  

An 82,465-square-foot multifamily residence, The Plains will provide 98 deeply affordable homes to Wakefield, with supportive services for 49 formerly homeless adults living with disabilities and 20 apartments reserved for adults 62 and older. Units will be available to low- and moderate-income individuals and families who meet the income eligibility thresholds of up to 80% of the NYC Average Median Income.  

Residential amenities will include tenant storage, offices for program staff and a multi-purpose room for program and tenant uses alike. The Plains is near subway, bus and commuter rail stations.
