Jacob's Place

Jacob's Place is an 8-story, new construction which combines 63 affordable apartments with a 5,000 square foot ground floor day care center.

Among the building's many sustainable features, the rooftop is employed for rain water harvesting and photovoltaic panels which produce electricity for lighting public halls.

Other green architectural elements employed include bamboo flooring for beauty and strength, non-toxic finishes, and permeable surfaces for efficient drainage.

The building's Art Deco design revives the historical flavor of the Crotona section of the Bronx.
