Developed by Jeffrey Brown and Kimberly Frank, this innovative building’s 56 separate modules were first fabricated offsite in Pennsylvania by DeLuxe Building Systems before they were packed up and shipped off to Manhattan. The straightforward and efficient building process then consisted of stacking the modules together, connecting the approximately 38,000-square-foot building to mechanical systems, and finishing off the interior design and exterior facade.

“This project exemplifies the opportunity to create an exciting design for living while enjoying the benefits and efficiencies of controlled, offsite fabrication,” says Brown and Frank. “As builders and developers, we are intrigued with this methodology and its application on a multitude of new projects. And, while the construction is innovative, the completed building provides a well-designed, efficiently built, modern structure incorporating 28 beautiful, comfortable, light-filled homes.”
