Designed by world-renowned architects, Dattner and Grimshaw, Via Verde is Green Urban Living, re-imagined. Located at 700 and 704 Brook Avenue at East 156th Street in the Melrose section of the Bronx, Via Verde is a 20 story, 222-unit green workforce housing development built to promote healthy living. The building is comprised of 71 cooperative and 151 rental homes.

The award-winning design is inspired by the integration of nature and city. At the heart of the project is a dynamic garden and series of green roofs that serve as the organizing architectural element and identity for the community. As the building steps up from three-story townhouses at the south to a 20-story tower at the north, there are a series of green roofs and south facing solar panels. The facade features aluminum, cement, and wood panels with panoramic windows, sunshades, and courtyard balconies.

The innovative design represents the future of high quality, affordable, and sustainable housing.
