UPDATED, 2:08 p.m., September 4: Unique People Services, a nonprofit organization focused on supportive housing, plans to bring a 93-unit project in the Bronx.

The organization filed plans Wednesday with the city’s Department of Buildings for the 13-story, 135-foot project at 2050 Grand Concourse in Mount Hope. The building will span about 64,000 square feet, split between 62,000 square feet of residential space and 2,000 square feet of community space. The property is currently a vacant lot.

Housing in the development will be for low- to moderate-income households and formerly homeless people with special needs, according to Unique People Services. The project will be split between 55 supportive housing units for single adults, 23 units for low-income households, 14 units for moderate-income households and one superintendent’s unit.

The nonprofit has 27 supportive housing programs throughout New York City and Westchester focused on helping the formerly homeless and people with developmental disabilities, according to its website.

Other projects on their way to the Bronx include a 152-unit residential building from nonprofit Breaking Ground at 448 East 143rd Street and a 255-unit residential project from developer Peter Fine at 1331 Jerome Avenue.

This story was updated to include more information on the project from Unique People Services.
