Affordable housing rooftop

For the past several years Design Wild has been working with the development team on a new twelve-story apartment building being constructed in Midtown Manhattan.  The new building, which now stands at its full 12 stories high, will contain 100% affordable apartments for New Yorkers in a wide range of incomes. 

Not only affordable, it’s also going to be gorgeous.

Design Wild has been working on the open space areas of course, which consist of a penthouse, shared roof deck, a second floor roof deck and a new community park adjacent to the building.  The rooftop terraces will be complete with a water play area for kids, a forest and meadow, lounge areas, eating areas, lots of sunshine and long views to the Hudson River.

This has been such an exciting project to be a part of and as the building comes close to competition the garden will start to be built. We can’t wait to see tenants moving in and enjoying the open space!
