City Limits recently published an article about the groundbreaking ceremony for one of our projects, Bedford Green House, also known as 2865 Creston Avenue in the Bronx. City Limits lauded the aquaponics horticultural systems that will set the building apart by providing fresh, organic vegetables and fish to the building’s residents. The piece includes a few words from ESKW/A partner Andrew Knox:
Last weekend, the Neighbors to Save Rivington House came together to present to the community stories from the building’s conversion and use as a nursing home for individuals with AIDS. Community members spoke of their personal experiences during Rivington House’s 20-year history.
ESKW/A partner Andrew Knox, a long-time neighbor to the building, attended the forum and spoke to the building’s characteristics and suitability as a nursing care facility.
The event was covered by The Lo-Down; the full article can be read here.
