The Stack, Manhattan's very first prefabricated, modular apartment complex, has just hit the rental market! Designed by GLUCK+ and located in the borough's Inwood neighborhood, the seven-story steel and concrete building offers 28 units ranging from one to three bedrooms. In addition to its efficient modular construction, the Stack offers added environmentally friendly and energy-saving features such as high-performance aluminum windows and WaterSense fixtures.
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.”
The Stack is also outfitted with additional perks such as bicycle storage and a common outdoor landscaped terrace. Leasing begins this month with occupancy expected to start in June. The Stack consists of six units of affordable housing and 22 market-rate units starting at $1,750 per month.
