Their building in the Corona neighborhood of Queens is unique in that it will provide over 60 affordable residential apartments to seniors while using a Passive House model. Passive House design utilizes specific methods for insulation and ventilation that maximize energy efficiency for the life of the building and keep long-term costs down for owners and residents.
