Prospect Avenue Building in Bronx

October 23, 2017

This new seven-story building houses two floors of offices and five floors of apartments, each with separate street entrances. A triple-height loggia on the street corner serves as the Community Facility entrance, and a single height entry on E. 168 Street accesses the residential lobby.

The residential floors are designed to Quality Housing standards of NYC Zoning. The narrow site allows residential corridors to be designed single-loaded, with windows overlooking a courtyard, such that all residential corridors are naturally lit. The penthouse is a single apartment and the third floor houses a group home. All told there are 20 apartments, 7,100 SF of office and 12 covered parking spaces.
