Harlem, New York

Jonathan Rose Companies and Harlem Congregations for Community Improvement (HCCI) are co-developers of
Dr. Muriel Petioni Plaza, a 65-unit green affordable housing development for seniors earning no more than 50% of the area median income (AMI).

Dr. Muriel Petioni Plaza is located at 203-209 West 146th Street, in the Bradhurst section of Harlem. During the 1980’s, the neighborhood faced one of the largest concentrations of abandoned properties in New York City. The former city-owned site, which was remediated prior to its development, was occupied by an abandoned film storage warehouse known as the Erbograph Building.

All of Dr. Muriel Petioni Plaza’s residences are designed to accommodate aging-inplace seniors and are fully accessible for individuals with physical disabilities. Other features of the building include a 7th floor green roof and outdoor terrace for residents to enjoy.

Dr. Muriel Petioni Plaza is one of the first “HUD 202 mixed-finance” senior housing developments in the country with LEED New Construction Gold certification. It has also been certified by Enterprise Green Communities Grant for its mission of environmental responsibility.

Green design features of the rental building include high-performance mechanical systems and equipment, non-toxic and recycled interior finishes and materials, a green roof, rainwater harvesting, FSC-certified wood flooring, natural day lighting, and solar shading.
