Housing nonprofit Breaking Ground filed permits for a residential building in the Bronx.
The permits are for an eight-story building with 152 units at 448 East 143rd Street, according to the Department of Buildings. The plan calls for about 74,000 square feet of residential space and roughly 15,000 square feet for a community facility.

Earlier this year, Breaking Ground filed plans for a 126-unit apartment building in Brownsville, Brooklyn. The eight-story building at 845 Howard Avenue will be called Edwin’s Place. It will include about 3,000 square feet of commercial space.

Breaking Ground, which focuses on providing supportive housing to the homeless, has more than a dozen properties across New York and elsewhere. They include the Christopher at 202 West 24th Street, with 207 units, and the Dorothy Ross Friedman Residence at 475 West 57th Street, with 178 units.
