  1. The PTAC’s really make it.

    • Because I believe you, legit question: What’s the cost difference between central HVAC and PTAC? Must be fairly significant, since so many of these buildings cheap-out on punch-throughs…?

      • I’m neither an architect or tradesperson, but i think it’s safe to say its significant cost difference. Honestly there are some that hate all PTAC’s but i think when the are integrated with the window assembly and opening, and clad in the same color most importantly, they look fine to me. It’s this aesthetically detrimental method of just cutting them into the masonry that is so horrendous and it really should be written out of the DOB building code.

  2. THIS ISN’T AFFORDABLE HOUSING BUT INCOME LINKED HOUSING.
    THIS ISN’T AFFORDABLE TO THE LOW INCOME PEOPLE OF THE BRONX.
    THIS IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO UPPER INCOME PEOPLE.
    WHAT A JOKE.
    THIS IS A TAXPAYER SUBSIDY TO MILLIONAIRE DEVELOPERS .
    421A IS DEAD SO THIS HAS STOPPED AS OF JUNE.
