EP Engineering collaborates with Amie Gross Architects to provide full MEP engineering services for new Supportive and Affordable Housing project developed by the not-for-profit organization Transitional Services for New York, Inc. (TSINY). The building is located on the corner of 161st Street and 89th Avenue in Jamaica, Queens. It will serve as an important staple for many vulnerable members of the local community; TSINY will provide affordable housing and supportive care when the building is complete for low-income seniors and those struggling with homelessness. Other partners in the project include the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) and Community Preservation Corporation (CPC).
When complete the building will be 8-stories tall, 46,000 square feet and will consist of 68 residential studio units. On-site counseling and administrative services, community based recreational activities and an outdoor garden space will be available to the residents. Construction of the building is anticipated to be complete sometime in 2022.
