The beacon residential facility

Just last week, we presented The Beacon to East Harlem’s community board, marking a major milestone as the project gears up for the ULURP process. This 21-story residential high-rise will introduce 282 affordable housing units to the neighborhood.

Fortified with fully electrified, passive house, flood-resilient design to help lower lifetime operating costs, The Beacon strives to signify community resilience in an historic, culturally rich neighborhood.

Moreover, this project exemplifies our commitment to advancing best practices by showcasing how cost-effective, resilient, low-carbon, and healthy buildings can be replicated across New York State.

Huge thanks to the project team, including Ascendant Neighborhood Development and The Community Builders, Inc., for making it possible. Aerial graphic provided by our incredible landscape team, terrain.
