Team Of Blesso Properties, Bronx Pro, Hollwich Kushner (HWKN), And James McCullar Architecture Named Finalist In New York City's AdAPT Competition

"For us it was crucial to create both a new way of living and an icon to communicate this new lifestyle to the larger city. Max takes advantage of city regulations regarding height and setbacks to create a unique kind of crown. The Chrysler Building and Empire State Building have their needles. The Citigroup Building has its angle. We designed Max's hat to define the micro-living movement and create a roofscape of amenities for the residents of the building."Marc Kushner, AIA; HWKN

HWKN designed each of Max's micro-units to feel big within a small footprint. Features such as a built-in bed, sofa and storage reduce furniture costs and clutter. Every apartment at Max is exactly the same size in 4 different layouts. Every inhabitant lives in a micro-unit. There is no hierarchy in Max. Of paramount importance to Max's design was accessibility – both financial and physical. Every single apartment at Max is completely handicapped accessible. As an older demographic moves back to the city, micro-units in projects similar to Max will offer solutions for seniors on fixed incomes looking for a social place to live.

"Our development team is united by a commitment to finding new ways to build community connections and invest in innovative housing models. Max is a reflection of that commitment and it answers the challenge of how New Yorkers will live sustainably and collectively in the future. We are honored to be a part of this historic RFP and to meaningfully contribute to the fresh look at New York City living proposed by Making Room and the Adapt RFP."Samantha Magistro, Bronx Pro

ABOUT THE adAPT NYC RFP

The adAPT NYC RFP, conducted by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), invited developers to submit proposals for the design, construction, and operation of a building of "micro-units" in Manhattan. The project serves as a pilot program to develop a new model of housing to adapt to the City's changing demographics. HPD identified 5 finalists including the team formed by Blesso Properties, Bronx Pro, HWKN, and James McCullar Architecture. The adAPT NYC finalist proposals will be showcased as part of the Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers exhibition through September 15th at the Museum of the City of New York.
