Prospect Avenue Bronx, NY
Mixed use multifamily building
Located in the vibrant Tremont commercial neighborhood in the south section of the Bronx, this small residential building with its commercial first floor space was designed to accommodate a small mixed use development in a dense commercial district.
Our program was to develop the smallest possible building area but to achieve the largest residential floor plans for the apartments.
The apartments boost three bedrooms facing both the front and the rear of the building.
Independent means of egress for residential and for commercial was also mandatory.
Efficient wood framing, R12 insulated fenestration, denim insulation and fireboards were used to be environmentally friendly and add safety to the occupants while keeping construction cost down.
The apartments boosted energy efficient appliances and gas fired PTac HVAC units, and all services were independently metered.
