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.
Construction is moving along for the 22-story residential building at 511 East 86th Street, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The project is in Yorkville, and is just two avenues away from the brand new 86th Street Subway Station, serviced by the Q trains. Sky Management is responsible for the development.
