Completion date


Echo Place offers 55 units of affordable housing in the Tremont section of the Bronx. DRPILLA has designed the structural system for the 32,000 square foot, six-story building. The building features a variety of communal spaces, including a lounge, a recreational room, a kitchen, and offices for support services.

Selecting an Efficient Structural System for a New Residential Building

The building’s exterior concrete block walls and brick veneer serve as perforated shear walls which provide the primary lateral resisting systems. Its foundation and footprint offsets from the neighbor’s building so as not to impart a lateral load onto the building’s foundation and footing. The design incorporates a signature flat plate concrete entry canopy.
