  • 47. Music Heritage Center “ And here we have an opportunity to bring all the wonderful music that has started here and has grown and has nourished here in the Bronx and bring it all together .” Valerie Capers on The Bronx Music Heritage Center, Bronx-born pianist, composer, and a Professor Emeritus at Bronx County Community College. “ Kids here are missing the connections to be involved and understand more than just rapping, or just one singular thing, they don’t understand the art behind it, and don’t have the resources to do so .” Will Calhoun on the need for the Bronx Music Heritage Center, Bronx-born drummer, composer, and a Grammy winner with Living Colour. “ I feel like it’s a really great opportunity for us to build with each other as younger cats to build with the older cats that are here and be involved in this project because connections have been lost .” Reph Starr on the need for the Bronx Music Heritage Center, Rapper, educator and producer who collaborates with his wife Patty Dukes in the only show Circa 95.
  • 48. Active Design
      • Locate the stairs so that they are equal or more prominently visible from the entrance lobby
      • Make the stairwells more enticing to use through lighting, music, artwork, and security cameras
      • Slow down elevator speed and increase the time elevator doors stay open
      • Add natural daylight and ventilation in the stairs
      • Use signage to help encourage and remind residents about the benefits of using the stairs
      • Outdoor active recreational facilities
      • Readily accessible secure bicycle storage areas
      • Indoor active recreation space
      • Community garden space
      • Offer exercise/fitness training classes and education
  • 49. Green Design Courtyard rain garden provides recreation space and encourages healthy living. The rooftop greenhouse will vegetables year round. 162nd Street entrance, one of three entrances to the building. Multiple building entrances increase accessibility and enhance connection to the surrounding neighborhood.
  • 50. Measuring Performance Once the buildings are built or retrofitted, how do you verify the projected consumption and cost savings? Benchmark and measure performance! + WHEDco is measuring actual performance of our buildings by collecting and analyzing utility data . + The Urban Horizons retrofit has reduced tenants’ electricity bills by 6.1% (while bills of other New York City residents are up 8.2%). + Using a database called Wegowise ( www.wegowise.com ), we plan to automate uploads of future utility data directly from the utility or Energy Service provider. The database is still in development, but will eventually enable comparisons to similar affordable housing (size, construction type, location, tenant make-up, fuel type). + Training and education are an essential part of any energy reduction effort. The data we gather can be used to create targeted tenant/staff education and we may be able to measure each training’s direct impact on consumption/costs. Data can also be used as a property management tool to ensure that tenants are following the rules and regulations of the building.
