Gouverneur Place Apartments was developed to be an integrated living environment for low-income families and individuals with mental health disabilities.
Gouverneur Place is a seven-story, 68-unit building located in the Morrisania section of the Bronx. The $20.7 million development, funded through a public-private partnership, was completed in December 2016. It has 50 supportive studios, (7) 1-bedrooms, (8) 2-bedrooms and (2) 3-bedrooms in addition to a live-in Super. It offers residents a laundry room, computer lounge, community room, rear yard with seating and 24/7 security.
