Gallery: Affordable Housing in The Bronx Goes Green at Via Verde by Gri...

The Bronx may have a bad rap for being the least healthiest county in New York State, but the NYC borough is also home to a thriving green industry. Not only are sustainable businesses popping up all over the place, but innovative green buildings are becoming more common, too. Grimshaw Architects is currently building Via Verde, an 18-story mixed-income development that is taking solar power innovation to the next level. The building will be outfitted with 300 solar panels placed in different vertical spaces on the structure, freeing up the rooftop for gorgeous green gardens.

    Thank you for great coverage on this important project. Dattner Architects worked with Grimshaw not only on the energy efficiently, but also collaboratively on the design from the original competition entry through to the current construction administration. It is a project we are all proud to be working on.
