In 2012, Fox Point was awarded Outstanding Residence of the Year by the Supportive Housing Network of New York (SHNNY). Three key factors were considered to determine the building’s construction type: code compliance, cost estimate and site conditions. The selected masonry wall and floor plank system yielded a shorter construction duration than expected. The seven-story building was topped out in approximately four months once the foundations were in place, at a pace of approximately one floor per week. The fast construction of the building made it possible to control the cost the actual construction cost to $10.5 million, equivalent to a unit construction cost of approximately $222 per square foot, less than a similar local residential building. The use of precast plank and steel contributed three points to the LEED Silver rating of the building, based on the use of recycled content and regional materials.
The Fox Point Residence, situated in the Bronx, is a seven-story residential building featuring a cellar and offering 47,300 square feet of accessible space. This affordable housing project includes 48 units tailored for low-income families and individuals. It stands out as one of the pioneering initiatives in New York City to incorporate green systems and materials into both the design and operation of a building. With a focus on sustainability, the building envelope and engineering systems are meticulously crafted to deliver high-performance architecture, fostering a health-conscious environment for its residents.
