The prevalence of sustainable Passive House structures is slowly growing in the United States, New York City included, which today counts more than 70 structures under the European-borne designation. In an announcement from design-build, general contractor firm UA Builders Group, 746 East 214th Street will become the latest addition to the group, making its debut in 2019. Located in the north-central blocks of The Bronx’s Williamsbridge, the property is immediately adjacent to the 2/5 Gun Hill Road Subway station.

After covering 220 Central Park South and 111 West 57th Street, it’s time we cover the tallest of the three skyscrapers under construction on Midtown’s billionaire’s alley. 217 West 57th Street is currently on track to reach 1,550 feet above the ground. Once complete, it will be the tallest residential skyscraper in the country and second tallest tower in the country. Extell Development is responsible for the project.
