Recently Alloy Development has unveiled plans to construct what will be one of New York City’s most sustainable mixed-use developments. Located at 100 Flatbush Avenue, the residential portion of the tower will be 100 percent electric, or fossil fuel independent, a first for the increasingly carbon neutral city.
Bronx Pro Group and Curtis + Ginsberg Architects have partnered on an eight-story, mixed-use development at 4697 Third Avenue in Fordham, The Bronx. The affordable housing development, which will contain both residential and retail components, will join a number of other projects the two firms have collaborated on in underrepresented neighborhoods of the borough in 2019.
Renderings have been released for 2126 Mapes Avenue, a new six-story building located in the Belmont neighborhood of the Bronx. The project is being developed in collaboration with Bronx Pro Group and designed by Curtis + Ginsberg Architects. When complete, the building will contain 30 rentals that range from one- to three-bedroom layouts. An affordable housing development, residences are reserved exclusively for individuals and families between 30 percent and 80 percent area median income.
Park Avenue Green, a new affordable housing community in the South Bronx is officially the largest Passive House development in North America. Defined by a stringent checklist of sustainable requirements, the project’s design reduces the expenditure of energy by incorporating a thoroughly sealed building envelope, advanced ventilation systems, low-energy cooling systems, and rooftop solar panels.
Work is expected to wrap up this spring at Houston House, a new condominium development in the East Village. Lee Properties Group has released a new set of renderings as the project comes to a close. Located at Houston and East 2nd Street, the building’s official address is 298 East 2nd Street.
