STRATEGIES AND RESULTS The building achieved LEED Platinum primarily through attention to basics such as air sealing, carefully designed individual apartment ventilation systems, the use of highly efficient heating equipment, and water conserving fixtures. While always planned as an affordable housing development, through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity NYC, we were able to create a number of more affordable units for purchasers with annual incomes down to $28,000.

EXEMPLARY PERFORMANCE Long-term affordability through energy savings was a key element of the project design. Fiberglass windows, rigorous air sealing, and continuous insulation boost the envelope far above traditional concrete and steel design. In addition to efficient fixtures and appliances, the project boasts an innovative micro combined heat and power system to generate common area electricity on site while capturing waste heat for domestic hot water. In total, the project boasts the highest modeled energy savings of any affordable multifamily project in New York City's ENERGY STAR history.
