935 Bruckner is a proposed 70-unit housing development in the Bronx for low-income individuals and for person living with HIV or AIDS. The building will be designed with high-performance specifications which go beyond the standards set by the public agencies involved.

A green façade system was designed as an integral part of the building’s south-facing facades using low-maintenance native vine species in order to help mitigate air pollutants from the adjacent Bruckner Expressway. Heat pump units will be installed in the residential units to avoid noise and air pollution to the interior environments and to maximize the energy-savings from the super-insulated exterior walls. In addition, a solar array will be included on the roof of the building to take advantage of the site’s southern exposure and provide an on-site alternative energy source.
