Project Description

Located in the Soundview area of the Bronx, this project will offer exciting opportunities to revitalize this portion of Westchester Avenue, providing urgently needed workforce and affordable housing. Adjacent to an elevated railway, the 12-story building will include 249 units of mixed-used affordable housing with ground floor retail and community facilities. The building will also feature a landscaped roof terrace, children’s play room, computer room, and community room as tenant amenity spaces.
The project will be designed to meet Passive House standards and will seek Passive House certification with PHIUS (Passive House Institute US). The project will also participate in Enterprise Green Communities Initiative (EGC) and the NYSERDA Commercial New Construction Program (NCP). The roofs above the 13th floor will support photovoltaic solar arrays. The project sponsor is also exploring additional resiliency systems, such as co-generation and battery storage.
