Decatur & Tiebout Green

These two affordable, multi-family housing buildings in the Bronx are built with a focus on sustainability.

The Decatur Green project features a rain water harvesting system for use in toilets, a high efficiency HVAC system and high performance building envelope.

All apartments are equipped with high efficiency appliances, fixtures and lighting, low VOC paints and sustainable finishes.
