Casa Celina will be a 16-story building comprised of 205 senior units at Sotomayor Houses in the Bronx, developed by Xenolith Partners, The Kretchmer Companies, ELH Mgmt. and JASA. Also, approximately 1,700 square feet of community space will be accessible to NYCHA residents and the surrounding community.
Amenities will include an exercise/fitness room, laundry room, lounge spaces on every floor, a second-floor community space, and a landscaped rooftop terrace. The JASA East Bronx Case Management Program will provide social support service and senior health and wellness programming on-site thanks to funding by the NYC Department for the Aging (DFTA).
This site was part of the NextGeneration NYCHA Seniors First RFP for a parking lot located on the Sotomayor Houses campus in the Soundview section of the Bronx.
