The faith-based nonprofit Volunteers of America plans to construct a 122-unit affordable housing building for seniors in the South Bronx.

Volunteers of America, an organization that focuses on issues like homelessness and domestic violence, filed plans on Friday with the Department of Buildings for a 14-story building at 112 East Clarke Place in Highbridge, close to Grand Concourse.

The organization purchased the vacant lot in February for $3 million, and its affordable housing building would be 68,104 square feet, permit filings show.

Volunteers of America sold its building at 340 West 85th Street in May to the West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing and leased 30,000 square feet of space soon after at UBS Realty Investors’ 135 West 50th Street.

Volunteers of America did not respond to a request for comment.

Other recent activities in the South Bronx include Tahoe Development filing an offering plan for a $25.3 million 47-unit condo development at 225 East 138th Street  and MDG Design & Construction teaming up with the Housing Partnership to purchase Michelangelo Apartments at 225-255 East 149th Street for $78.1 million.
