Alexander Development Group, The Bluestone Organization, and J.P. Morgan Global Alternatives have opened 42 Broad in Mount Vernon, New York, for leasing. Touted as one of the nation’s most energy-efficient residential buildings, the 249-unit high-rise has achieved Phius Passive House Design Certification and brings a wealth of amenities to Mount Vernon’s Fleetwood neighborhood.

“Fleetwood is one of the most attractive living destinations in Westchester County, and yet, there is a lack of for-rent luxury housing options that offer an expansive amenities package,” says Mark Alexander, co-founder and principal of Alexander Development Group. “With 42 Broad, we saw an incredible opportunity to address this demand. We believe the homes will appeal to renters from all walks of life, including empty nesters looking to downsize and young professionals seeking more living space in close proximity to Manhattan.”

Designed by global architecture firm Perkins Eastman, the sustainable community includes a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom units with 9-foot ceilings and 7-foot panoramic windows. Select residences offer Manhattan skyline views. Apartments also include filtered air ventilation; smart thermostats; highly efficient HVAC systems; spa-like bathrooms with walk-in showers and Italian porcelain; wood-style flooring; Energy Star appliances; and walk-in closets.

With over 20,000 square feet of programmed amenities, residents will have access to a fitness center; a heated, three-season pool; a 17th floor roof deck with outdoor kitchens and a dining area; a lobby lounge; a pub room; a large community room; a courtyard Zen garden; and coworking spaces and conference rooms. Additional amenities include a valet parking garage with covered parking, a secured package room, a pet grooming station, electric vehicle charging stations, and bike storage.

Through the use of high-performance windows, extensive insulation, mechanical ventilation, and high-tech building systems, 42 Broad will use up to 80% less energy for heating and cooling than existing buildings. “With 42 Broad we have created a collection of forward-thinking residences that reflect our dedication to sustainable living and represents a truly unique offering in today’s crowded multifamily real estate market,” says Eric Bluestone of The Bluestone Organization. “The upscale building’s combination of sustainable features and vast array of amenities sets it apart from other luxury properties in the area.”

The new building’s concierge services will be managed by Bozzuto and will include a 24-hour concierge, a valet for parking and dry cleaning, a coffee bar, loaner bikes, curated resident events, and more. Later this year, ground-floor retail offerings will also be coming to 42 Broad.
