Rising 9 stories above the Norwood section of the Bronx, Lisbon Place is a new residential building comprised entirely of one bedroom rentals. Apartments feature sustainable finishes, exterior shading devices, and a communal rooftop space. The building provides much needed housing in a design that remains sensitive to its surrounding context.
This award-winning LEED Silver and Enterprise Green Communities certified project provides affordable apartments and amenities for community residents ages 55 and over. The building features a recessed green roof, a high performance thermal envelope, recycled and renewable materials, and efficient mechanical and electrical systems.
The architects took advantage of the steeply sloping site to bring in expansive day lighting and create outdoor terraces adjacent to recreation and program spaces. On-site amenities include a tenant library and multi-purpose room, laundry facilities, and support services.
West Tremont Residence received the 2017 Big Apple Brownfield Award for Collaboration from the NYC Brownfield Partnership.
OCV was tasked to do a full renovation of the dual level lobbies at this East Village cooperative complex, whose existing conditions had made access to laundry rooms and mail boxes unmanageable for elderly and handicapped persons.
