Yuck on all of them. But for affordable housing they look the same as some of the "luxury" housing.

Anyone notice the renderings for Washington Avenue/Friendly Towers are the same? Same people, same trees, same building layout, just different facades.

Hey, they're not making big bucks, they need to cut a bit on the artwork.

I think its a shame the city doesn't just encourage people to build housing in the Bronx and drop the affordable label and requirement. The fact of the matter is most of the Bronx has low rents, so the market price is already relatively affordable. The whole problem with the Bronx is that middle class Americans and immigrants perceive it as a place with a lot of "affordable housing" as in slum-like housing. Whatever artist renderings there are, people will not change their perception if there are income requirements on the building.

Why not encourage hard working people who want a bargain but not a government-socialist pricing model to come back by building housing without restrictions. You might need tax breaks to get the development going, but if we can do 421-a in Manhattan, surely we can do something in the Bronx.

^ ...and then due to increased supply, prices may stabilize somewhat --even in other parts of the city.
