Project Description

425 Grand Concourse is in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the Bronx. This new mixed-use and mixed-income development will create 277 units of affordable housing for low- and moderate-income families. The 26-story tower will be designed to Passive House standards, consuming significantly less energy than a conventional housing project. It will house a educational space for a public university, a medical facility, a supermarket, and community support space. A new accessible walkway connects Walton Avenue to Grand Concourse, alongside Garrison Playground, and a new comfort station will be housed within the building for the park.

The largest passive house project planned for North America to date, 425 Grand Concourse will surpass the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria and incorporate NYC Active Design Guidelines. As a gateway to the historic Grand Concourse, one of the Bronx’s great boulevards, the new development will anchor this important corner and enhance the Mott Haven neighborhood.
