About The Eltona The Eltona is a 63 unit, five story, low income residential rental building constructed entirely of precast concrete in the Melrose section of the Bronx. This project was developed under The NYS Department of Housing and Community Renewal’s “Homes for Working Families” program and the NYC Housing Development Corporation’s “LAMP” program. The building is enrolled in NYSERDA’s Multifamily Performance program and the USGBC’s LEED for Homes program. The building will be the subject of a study to be performed by the Mt.
