The future of green living in NYC The future of green living in NYC
While LEED might have led the way in sustainable, energy-efficient, healthy and environment-friendly building design, we've come a long way. Internationally-recognized standards like Passive House and new methods of reducing our carbon footprint like Zero Waste are finding their way into New York City's newest residences, adding wellness, energy savings, and less wasteful living to luxury and great design.
565-broome-street-living-room Living Room; Bizzi & Partners Development
Recently “Zero Waste,” defined by the U.S. Zero Waste Business Council as, “achieving over 90% diversion of waste from landfills, incinerators, and the environment,” is rising in popularity, with good reason: Certified buildings won’t be generating the mountains of garbage that are the bane of NYC living. This under-construction 30-story condominium tower at the crossroads of Soho, Hudson Square, and Tribeca, hopes to be Manhattan’s first Zero Waste-certified residential building.
