Jacob’s Place Apartments
Jacob’s Place is an 8-story, new construction which combines 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 elements include bamboo flooring, 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.
