The structural foundation system features a 3-foot-6-inch-thick mat foundation designed to “float” to accommodate substandard soil conditions. The building’s façade is a harmonious blend of brick veneer, terracotta rain screen, and metal cladding at the ninth floor, while the construction utilizes a block and plank construction method.

The Villa Avenue Residences, situated in the Bedford Park neighborhood of the Bronx, present 56 units of innovative supportive housing. Tailored to meet the needs of formerly homeless Bronx residents grappling with chronic health issues, the residence includes single occupancy efficiency units alongside communal spaces like a lounge, a spacious community room, a paved rooftop terrace, and on-site social services. DRPILLA spearheaded the structural design for this nine-story, 33,240-square-foot building.
