For Heritage Health & Housing and Westhab in New York city 

NEW YORK — Françoise Bollack Architects (FBA) announces the design of a new 118 units apartment building for Heritage Health and Housing and Westhab, a New York State based non-profit developer of affordable housing. The 26,052 square feet site located in the Bronx is currently owned by New York City’s HPD (Department of Housing Preservation and Development) who is seeking proposals for its development. FBA’s has designed an urban “Green” building using geothermal energy, photovoltaic cells as a source of clean renewable energy and a green roof. The development will provide 60 studio apartments in a supportive setting for tenants with special needs (e.g. seniors, formerly homeless people) and 58 one, two and three bedroom apartments for rental. The principles of FBA’s design are (1) integration with the neighborhood’s architecture through contextual materials and massing and (2) innovation and renewal through the introduction of contemporary materials and expression in key places.
