New energy efficient apartment complex in Morrisania to be completed in October

Some low-income tenants will soon be stepping into the future when construction on a new energy efficient apartment complex is completed.

The complex, which is located on 164th Street and was originally zoned for commercial use, is expected to be finished by October. There will be 105 apartments for low-income families. And what makes the building unique is that tenants will use solar power in their apartments.

The new building was made possible due to a collaborative effort between the city, state and private investors.
