Structural and Geotechnical Design
Villa Avenue offers affordable housing in the Jerome Park neighborhood of the Bronx. DRPILLA designed the structural system for the 33,240 square foot, nine story building. The typical building facades consist of a brick veneer and terracotta rain screen with metal cladding at the ninth floor. The structural system of the building is supported on a 3′ 6″ thick mat foundation system due to the existing soil conditions. The building is block and plank construction.
