Architecture that keeps the pounds off

Tenants in a new co-op in New York will be one of the first in the nation to live in a new type of healthy building.  According to  the Gothamist, "the eight-story, 63-unit, co-op called The Melody was built with keeping active in mind. So not only does it include a gym inside and exercise equipment outside, it also boasts a well-lit, decorated stairwell with light jazz coming over the speakers. And outside of that staircase is a sign that reads: “A person’s health can be judged by which they take two of at a time, pills or stairs."  Blue Sea Development and Habitat for Humanity teamed up to build the moderate income apartment building.
