Chestnut Commons featured in Bloomberg’s Look at That Building

Chestnut Commons was recently featured in Bloomberg CityLab’s Look at That Building — a weekly series about everyday and not-so-everyday architecture.

Principal John Woelfling gave Bloomberg writer Lizzie Kane a tour of the Passive House project, discussing how the design team sought to challenge the traditional model for affordable housing in New York City.
