Crotona Park Apartments Receives 2012 Big Apple Brownfield Award
 
 
April 23, 2012 : SoBRO is pleased to announce that its most recent development project, Crotona Park Apartments, has been selected to receive the Big Apple Brownfield Award in the category of Affordable Housing. The Big Apple Brownfield Awards, given on behalf of the New York City Brownfield Partnership, recognize excellence in brownfield redevelopment by honoring the most successful brownfield projects in New York City. SoBRO will join its partners, Exact Capital and Joy Construction Corporation, to formally receive the honor at the Big Apple Brownfield Awards Ceremony on Thursday, May 3 rd . The ceremony will be held in the Greenberg Lounge at NYU School of Law from 4:30 to 7:00 pm.
 
Crotona Park Apartments received the Brownfield award for its creation of 64 high quality low- and moderate-income units, along with over 12,000 square feet of commercial and community facility space, on the site of a former gasoline station in a high-need section of the Bronx. Units are priced at or below 80% of area median income and are guaranteed to remain affordable for at least a 30-year term. The project also embodies the essence of energy-efficient design by participating in the NYSERDA Multifamily Performance Program so as to reduce energy consumption by 20% of baseline standards. Green design features include high efficiency boilers, Energy Star appliances and lighting fixtures, occupancy sensors, increased insulation and air sealing, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and a green roof for tenant use; truly a “brown to green” project.
 
A ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of Crotona Park Apartments will take place on Monday, May 7 th from 9:30am to 12:00pm at the project site, located at 1800 Southern Boulevard in the Bronx.
