A new seven-story Passive House development will soon debut in the Charlotte Gardens section of The Bronx. The building is located at 1525-1527 Bryant Avenue and will eventually comprise over 12,200 square feet of residential area.

Designed by Node Architecture, Engineering, Consulting P.C., the property will contain 12 rental units averaging approximately 519 feet apiece. Select units will include private outdoor balconies. Amenities include laundry facilities, outdoor recreational area, additional outdoor space at the rear of the building, and a roof-level terrace with grills and seating area.

As a Passive House development, the structure features a high-performance envelope, a continuous solar panel above the roof level, and a number of smaller solar panels throughout the exterior. The window system is also Passive House-certified and extremely air-tight to help reduce heat gain and loss depending on existing weather conditions.

The renderings portray a fairly orthodox massing with plant-lined balconies up the centerline of the structure, and more hanging plants on the side elevations. The upper levels appear to accommodate a covered terrace, and the entire exterior is shroud in what appears to be photovoltaic paneling.

The property is located several blocks away from Crotona Park and about one mile south of the Bronx Zoo. Future occupants who rely on the subway will have easy access to the 2 and 5 train lines at the 174th Street Station, the Cross Bronx Expressway, and a forthcoming extension of the Metro North.

    More proof that every new building in NYC can be built to passive standards. The added cost of extra insulation and air exchange equipment adds only about 10% to the building cost, but quickly recoups the investment because the building has little or no heating and lighting costs. Buildings contribute a significant amount of carbon emissions and passive construction can end that.
    Living or working in a passive building is also extremely comfortable and healthy. This is the future the City needs to direct.
