3. Mott Haven Substation/Fake Townhouses
Located at 380 Southern Blvd (and boardered by Brucker Avenue and 144th Street), the Mott Haven Substation, operated by Con Edison, is easily mistaken as a gated townhouse community by locals and passersby alike. The aesthetically pleasing concealment of this enormous four story, 125,000 square foot facility, earned it the “Best Manufacturing Facility” title by the Precast / Prestressed Concrete Institute Northeast Covering New England and New York.
