Via Verde is an affordable, sustainable residential development comprising 222 apartments in three distinct building types—a 20-story tower at the north end of the site, a 6- to 13-story mid-rise duplex apartment component in the middle, and 2- to 4-story townhouses to the south. The project was the winning entry in the international New Housing New York Legacy Competition, sponsored New York City HPD, the AIA New York, NYSERDA and Enterprise Community Partners. It reflects a public commitment to create the next generation of social housing and seeks to provide a setting for healthy, sustainable living.

The garden begins as a ground level courtyard and then spirals upwards through a series of programmed, south-facing roof gardens, creating a promenade for residents. A terrace and community room at the top floor of the tower offers dramatic views. The multifunctional gardens create opportunities for active gardening, fruit and vegetable cultivation, recreation and social gathering, while also providing the benefits of storm water control and enhanced insulation. The building takes the form of a “tendril” rising from grade to the tower, enclosing the courtyard and emphasizing a relationship to the natural world.

The ground floor features retail, a community health center, and live-work units, creating a lively street presence. Above the main entrance overlooking the street and courtyard are resident community spaces, including a fitness center.

Stairwells with natural light are easily accessible, promoting wellness and encouraging regular use for physical activity. Save this picture!SectionCultivating the development of community and pride of place, Via Verde has reserved its premium space – the penthouse floor of the tower building – for the community common room, open to all tenants. Via Verde’s design, incorporating a shared courtyard and large windows, promotes cross ventilation between two outside exposures – increasing the natural circulation of fresh air in the homes and reducing reliance on air conditioning.

A ‘Living Green Guide’ will be given to each resident with information on how to promote energy optimization and green, healthy living.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessNew Shelter in Ruavieja / Sergio RojoSelected ProjectsTall Tinder: Are Wooden Skyscrapers Really Fire Safe?ArticlesProject locationAddress:700 Brook Avenue, Bronx, NY 10455, USALocation to be used only as a reference.
