Brand new apartments now available as low as $650 a month for 3 bedroom units on the Grand Concourse

MOTT HAVEN—Applications are now being accepted for 277 brand-new apartments in the tallest building on the Grand Concourse via New York City’s Housing Connect affordable housing lottery website.

425 Grand Concourse is now the tallest building on The Bronx’s most famous boulevard

Located at 425 Grand Concourse, at the site of the tragically demolished landmarked PS 31 aka ‘Castle on the Concourse’, the 26-story building is also currently the largest Passive House in North America which means that not only does the building have superior energy efficiency throughout but also has a greatly reduced carbon footprint when compared to similar buildings of its size, thus lessening its impact on the environment.
