A 1,045-unit housing complex known as Bronx Point is now recognized as the first and only affordable housing project to achieve WEDG certification. The rating system was founded by the Waterfront Alliance, an independent offshoot of The Municipal Art Society of New York, that establishes guidelines for ecologically friendly waterfront design and construction.

Non-profit developer Phipps Houses under the Mott Center, LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications. Marvel Architects is listed as the architect of record.
