Bronx Tech Incubator

Bronx, NY, USA • 2015

An industrial building is renovated to create a high performance Passive House tech office space.

The Bronx Tech Incubator will provide a mix of offices, open workstations and collaboration spaces for technology startups.  Encompassing over 23,000 square feet in a converted industrial building, the project will be designed to Passive House standards for building performance and energy efficiency.

Located in the Bronx's Foxhurst neighborhood, the Tech Incubator will bring jobs, access to working and social space, and a cafe to an underserved community removed from Manhattan's established Silicon Alleys.

The project will incorporate advanced design, detailing and construction methodologies to achieve Passive House certification for high indoor air quality and very low operational energy usage. As of project inception it will be the largest commercial Passive House project in the United States.
