520 Morris Park Avenue

20 Units in NYC Saving $183.70 per unit, per year with positive ROI after months..

Historic 5 story building dating back to the early 1900's

located in the civic Van Nest area.

Project completed in just over 4.5 months

520 Morris Park Ave. is an apartment building in a civic minded community.

Built in 1915, located in Bronx county. This building is managed by Hudson Gateway MLS and It is one of the oldest building the Water Scrooge has worked on. Which means that placing some equipment may require knowledge of older building structures and how that can affect our product in the present and future. The Morris Park Neighborhood has an average family household percentage of 41.7%, and an average household size of 2.8 people. This tells us how much water is likely to be used in the area.

A large residential development like 30 East End Ave faces unique challenges when trying to reduce costs while keeping their property operations running smoothly. Every problem and every cost is amplified on a large scale. 520Morris condominiums were concerned with their constantly increasing water and hot water usage and the rising cost of water and energy in New York City. They needed a solution that would work on a community wide scale and they needed someone that would be able to implement that solution seamlessly. The management team at 30 East End Ave turned to The Water Scrooge because of their industry leading, proprietary solutions and their track record reducing water and hot water related costs in large multi-family properties in the New York City area.


The Water Scrooge team needed to identify the cause of the rising water usage at 520Morris so they can provide the right solution, and they had to do it for more then 170 buildings. They started by analyzing the water usage for the entire 520Morris development, building by building. After extensive research, The Water Scrooge was able to propose a solution. The Water Scrooge implemented their solution in phases in order to test their assumptions about the causes of the community wide water problem. After succesfull deployment in the first group of buildings, they scaled up to the rest of the locations. The Water Scrooge was able to identify the root causes of the high water usage, and and confirm the reduction in water usage at each building throughout the project.

Don't let water usage be a pain in your wallet.
