Opened in 2009 in the Crotona East section of the Bronx, Intervale Green boasts numerous features that demonstrate WHEDco’s commitment to responsible stewardship of our planet, including:
Intervale Green reflects WHEDCo’s commitment to provide beautiful affordable apartments that instill families with pride of place. We promote holistic, healthy living among residents through workshops that teach tenants to use environmentally friendly products and minimize energy and water usage; nutrition and cooking clubs; physical fitness activities; a private backyard where children can play; and a rooftop farm.

With the support of WHEDco, the tenants at Intervale Green grow vegetables, herbs, and flowers on the rooftop. The rooftop farm also provides a green environment that connects tenants through positive social interactions, leading to a greener, healthier community.
Help extend the rooftop farm's growing season throughout the year! Donate $10 and spread the word about the #10forBxFarm campaign.
The green roofs at Intervale Green help collect and reduce storm water runoff and improve the air quality in the neighborhood, which has the second highest asthma rate in the Bronx. By diverting water from the City’s sewer system and filtering the water, Intervale Green contributes to cleaner waterways and beaches.
The Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development honored Intervale Green with the 2012 Development of the Year Award, and in 2009 the building was awarded the Charles L. Edson Tax Credit Excellence Award.
