The Noonan Plaza Apartments are an eight-story Art Deco apartment complex in the Highbridge neighborhood of the Bronx. Built in 1931 by Horace Ginsberg & Associates, with exteriors by Marvin Fine, the Noonan Plaza Apartments form part of the legacy of Art Deco apartments in the West Bronx. Inspired by Ginsberg & Associates Midtown, Manhattan skyscrapers, Fine made the Daily News Building’s multicolored brick the firm’s trademark in the Bronx. 

In 2010, the Noonan Plaza Apartments was designated a landmark and is currently being used for affordable housing. Most recently, Noonan Plaza Housing LLC and Danois Architects completed an extensive interior and exterior modernization that respected the historic fabric of the building and complex.
