"When Bronx residents watched a 300-foot crane lower 90,000-pound blue- and red-accented modules onto a former used-car lot, the construction process reminded them of a familiar childhood toy.
So the locals dubbed it the Lego Building.
The seven-story residential building at 3361 Third Ave. was built using modular construction: Its 51 pieces were made in a Brooklyn factory, then assembled on the building site. It now houses 62 low-income tenants. Thirty-eight of these are formerly homeless and live in so-called supportive housing, which integrates social services for them."
