"The Melody" stands on land that was once owned by the City of New York and was developed under Mayor Bloomberg's New Housing Marketplace Plan. It's on a brownfield site and has initiatives to keep its residents healthy. There are indoor and outdoor fitness centers, a children's climbing and play area, and a slow moving elevator. It was purposely constructed that way to encouraged the use of the well-lit stairs. There are also motivational signs to encourage residents to exercise.
