Arbor House | ABS Architects | The Bronx, New York

Located in the Morrisania neighborhood of the Bronx, the Arbor House lives up to its name with a hydroponic farm on its roof that can grow enough vegetables for 450 people annually. The 124 units are similarly green-focused, with a focus on reclaimed and recycled materials, energy-efficient appliances, and a living wall in the lobby. The building is also designed to encourage stair use and physical movement in accordance with the city's Active Design guidelines.
