Located in the Melrose Commons Urban Renewal Area in the South Bronx, Courtlandt Crescent is the second phase of a redevelopment by Phipps Houses that began on the adjacent site with Courtlandt Corners. Designed under the NYC Quality Housing Program, the building’s setbacks and bays provide a residential scale. Brick colors and patterns address contextual issues, while Metal Panels and Sun Shades provide a contemporary architectural expression, together they create a welcoming residential character. The 217 studios to three bedroom units have generous layouts and large windows to provide abundant natural light, and are arranged around a courtyard created by the two buildings. Courtlandt Corners is participating in the Enterprise Green Communities Initiative and NYSERDA Multifamily Performance Program.
