Applications are currently being accepted for 22 affordable apartments at 3365 Third Avenue in the Bronx neighborhood of Morrisania. Developed by Bronx Pro Group and designed by Curtis+Ginsberg Architects, the project meets the passive house standard by featuring energy-efficient measures such as fiberglass triple-pane windows, LED lighting, and low-flow water fixtures — all of which will result in energy reduction savings as high as high as nearly 90 percent. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 60 or 100 percent of the area median income can apply for the units, ranging from $865/month studios to$1,969/month four-bedrooms.

The building sits in the city’s rezoned part of Morrisania, which changed the mostly manufacturing neighborhood into an area with more mixed-use developments and community facilities. The 3365 Third Avenue project is the third developed by Bronx Pro in the district. Their past projects include a 90-unit building built in 2006 for the DreamYard Project, a Bronx arts educator, and a 49-unit residential building at 1070 Washington Avenue.

The passive house will feature split heat pumps for heating and cooling, an air-tight building envelope, and energy recovery ventilators. Amenities include an on-site superintendent, laundry facility, and a 9,500-square-foot community space at the base.
