Alexander Gorlin Architects designs a modernist facade in The Bronx

Brought to you by:

Continuing two decades of work on affordable housing in New York, Alexander Gorlin Architects’ latest multifamily project, El Borinquen Residence, brings a modernist face to The Bronx’s Morrisania neighborhood. Named after the Taíno name for Puerto Rico, the project has brought 148 units to the primarily Latino neighborhood. Covering 90,000 square feet, the building reserves 90 units for young adults aging out of foster care and formerly homeless individuals in need of mental health care, while the other 57 are for low-income seniors and community residents.
