Our award-winning building, The Jennings

New Destiny is committed to developing affordable housing that is well designed, provides a healthy environment, and incorporates sustainable, green materials.

We are thrilled that our most recently completed building, The Jennings, a 42‑unit service-enriched affordable building in the Bronx, has received two awards for its unique design by the project’s architect, Alexander Gorlin Associates:

  • The Excelsior New Construction Honor Award from the New York State Chapter of the American Institute of Architects in recognition of:
    “The project’s overall performance, how it impacts the user and the community and design excellence, all within the context of a publicly funded project.”
  • Finalist in the Multi-Unit Residential Building category of Interior Design magazine’s 2020 NYCxDESIGN awards.

The Jennings is located in a community that had once been a symbol of urban decay and is now a vibrant community with both new and redeveloped buildings.

Read more about both the history of the neighborhood and the project’s design in this month’s Architectural Record magazine and in the latest issue of HIVE, an online publication of the Design Leadership Network.
