Second Farms, also known as 1932 Bryant, revitalizes a key site in the West Farms neighborhood of the Bronx. The 15-story building will provide 319 affordable housing units, commercial space, and a community facility. Sited on a narrow, sloped site, with rock outcroppings characteristic of much of the Bronx, the building sits within a landscaped forecourt.

All of the apartments in the building are Affordable. 50% of the units are set aside for residents living in the neighborhood, 5% for people with mobility disabilities, 5% for municipal employees, and 2% for the visually impaired. The building is designed as family housing, with apartments as large as 3-bedrooms, and also includes shared co-working space for tenants and storage for 160 bicycles, and outdoor spaces for passive recreation and socializing. The building is two blocks away from the West Farms Square subway station.

The modern building, built on a slope, incorporates four different colors of brick, employed to distinguish the various sections of the building. Black brick connects windows making columns of two and three, informing the main design of the façade. White bricks cover two corners, and golden bricks rise in a thin column from above the main entrance, creating the illusion of division in the center of the structure to break down the visual mass of the long facade.
