University Avenue Rehabilitation

This Green Communities tenant-in-occupancy rehabilitation took a severely distressed high rise in the Bronx and transformed it into green, high quality, affordable housing.

Going beyond the standard rehabilitation project, OCV transformed this property into a community asset by converting the building’s parking lot rooftop into an expansive rain harvesting terrace with gardening planters for resident use.
