NEW YORK—AHRC New York City, a nonprofit provider of services for intellectually disabled individuals, has relocated and consolidated its Bronx programs into a new building at 1420 Ferris Place. Simone Development Companies’ James MacDonald, director of leasing, advised AHRC throughout the process, identified the site and developed the property to suite AHRC.
Previously, AHRC occupied several buildings in the Bronx, including its location at 1500 Pelham Parkway South, which is being redeveloped as a charter school. Because of those plans, AHRC needed to relocate and took the opportunity to consolidate its other sites into a single location.
The new building includes recycled construction materials.
“By offering brand new, high-quality space in a great location, this new facility will enable AHRC to better serve the Bronx community,” said Joseph Simone, president of Simone Development. “We’re also pleased to develop a building with a reduced environmental impact, because we’ve incorporated the most advanced recycled materials into its construction.”
