Foxy Management plans to build an 168-unit senior housing project on top of a two-story community center in the West Bronx.

The Bronx-based developer filed plans on Friday to add eight stories to an existing two-story building at 1880 Boston Road, just off the Cross Bronx Expressway. The Cerebral Palsy Association of New York currently leases the building and plans indicate that a “not for profit and ambulatory diagnostic center” will move into the basement and first floor of the completed project. Representatives for Foxy, led by Shelly and Jeff Fox, didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.

The apartments will be for senior citizens and will be co-developed with Alembic Community Development and the Hebrew Home for the Aged in Riverdale, according to Foxy’s website. The project is expected to cost $78 million and will be financed, in part, through the city’s Department of Housing Preservation & Development’s SARA program, which provides low-interest loans for affordable housing for seniors.

The project is expected to have 133,812 square feet of residential space across the second through 10th floors, according to a permit application filed with the city’s Department of Buildings. The 10-story building will also have 2,317 square feet of retail in the basement.

Property records show that current owner, listed as Walter J. Hirsch & Co., bought the property in 2009 for $1.3 million. Hirsch and Foxy inked a sale contract that same year, but it’s not clear if the property has yet been transferred to the developer.

SLCE Architects TRData LogoTINY is designing the project.

An earlier version of this story misstated the estimated cost of the project. It’s $78 million.
