Innovative design for a transit-oriented and energy-efficient development

CHV acquired the site for 97 Crooke from a Caledonia Hospital bankruptcy sale in 2007 and it now offers fully-furnished studio apartments for low-income individuals earning under 60% AMI and for individuals exiting the New York City shelter system.

This project represents CHV’s commitment to design excellence with an innovative development built on a tight lot configuration in close proximity to the MTA open cut of the B/Q subway lines. CHV continues to work with the adjacent MTA owner to landscape and permanently maintain the adjacent parcel as passive green space for the community. In addition to being transit-oriented, 97 Crooke is energy-efficient and sustainable. CHV designed the project to be 20% more efficient as compared to NYSERDA baseline building standards, and it promotes healthy indoor air quality through non-toxic finishes and ventilation.
