Sendero Verde

In November 2020, the development team of L+M Development, Jonathan Rose Associates, and Acacia Network celebrated topping-out the initial phase of Sendero Verde – among the largest fully affordable Passive House projects in the world once both phases are completed. AKRF is the environmental planning consultant for this important development project in East Harlem. The initial phase of Sendero Verde will contain 360 units of affordable housing, community space for Union Settlement Association, space for a school, an 18,000-square-foot courtyard, and community gardens. The project is being financed through HPD and HDC’s ELLA (Extremely Low and Low-Income Affordability) Program, and 36 units will be set aside for formerly homeless families, who will have access to social services programs provided by Promesa.
