425 Grand Concourse is the largest Passive House project planned for North America to date. This new mixed-use and mixed-income development will create 277 units of affordable housing. The two-story base will house a medical facility, supermarket, community support space, and a new student services center for CUNY Hostos—each also designed by Dattner Architects.

425 Grand Concourse is the largest Passive House project planned for North America to date. This new mixed-use and mixed-income development will create 277 units of affordable housing. The two-story base will house a medical facility, supermarket, community support space, and a new student services center for CUNY Hostos—each also designed by Dattner Architects.

The 26-story building will be designed to Passive House standards and will consume up to 70% less energy than a conventional housing project. The development will implement high efficiency building systems with an air-tight building envelope, energy recovery ventilation, and sustainable features to significantly reduce heat loss and gain. The project will surpass the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria and the design will incorporate NYC Active Design Guidelines to encourage opportunities for physical activity.

This benchmark sustainable project provides a model for healthy living enviroments in a district with one of the worst childhood asthma rates in the country. Each apartments’ living rooms and bedrooms will directly receive filter, ventilated air, increasing  interior comfort and air quality. The project’s expansive windows will provide abundant amounts of daylight into the apartments while balancing the window to wall ratio that is critical to achieve Passive House performance levels.

The project balances the critical need for affordable homes and the need for a high-quality and attractive development that promotes street activity. As a gateway to the Bronx’s historic Grand Concourse, one of the Bronx’s great boulevards, the new development will anchor this important corner and enhance the Mott Haven neighborhood.

The building offers residents a wide variety of amenities including a recreation room, landscaped roof terrace, a lounge space and fitness room, laundry rooms, bike storage, and a parking garage.
