SLCE designs senior housing on Staten Island.

Schuman Lichtenstein Claman and Efron (SLCE) has been named design architect for the Garden Manor Senior Housing, sponsored by St. Vincent's Medical Center of Richmond, reports Albert Efron, FAIA, the SLICE partner in charge of the project.

The six-story,72-unit building will be at 250 Park Avenue, between Castleton and Anderson Avenues, in the Port Richmond section of Staten Island.

Construction on the $6.2 million Garden Manor will begin in early 1994, with occupancy expected in spring of 1995, said Efron. Saky Yakas, AIA, is the SLCE project architect.

St. Vincent's is part of the Sisters of Charity Health Care System, a non-profit Roman Catholic organization.

The first st. Vincent's housing for senior citizens, known as Joseph House, is located at 101 Myrtle Avenue in West Brighton, between North Burgher and Broadway.

In addition to St. Vincent's Medical Center, the Sisters of Charity Health Care System includes Bayley Seton Hospital, Pax Christi Hospice, St. Elizabeth Ann's Nursing Home and Sisters of Charity Home Health Care corporation.

Part of Garden Manor's first floor will be dedicated to providing a host of services for residents, including a social services office, medical office, arts and crafts room, community room and club room.

Designing the building required a sensitivity to the landmark Catholic Youth Organization center across the street, noted Efron.

Built under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Section 202 program, Garden Manor will be a loadbearing masonry, brick-faced, concrete-plank building.

Its first floor will feature an 860-square-foot community room, a 390-square-foot club room, a 680-square-foot arts and crafts room, and a social-service and medical office.

Teamed with SLCE on the project are Monadnock Construction Inc., contractor; Antony Vairamides P.E. P.c., structural engineer; T/S Associates, consulting engineer; and Abel Bainnson Butz, landscape architect; and Diffendale and Kubec, supervising architects.
