As the City Council mulls how to charge residents for garbage pickup, one upcoming high-rise will remain mostly unaffected, producing little waste as part of an effort to maintaining a low environmental footprint. 565 Broome SoHo, an under construction condo rising at the crossroads of Hudson Square, Tribeca, and SoHo, wants to be Manhattan’s first Zero Waste-certified residential building. The 30-floor, 115-unit tower is being designed by the world-renowned office of Renzo Piano and developed by Bizzi & Partners Development, Aronov Development and Halpern Real Estate Ventures.
According to a recent press release, the project team is partnering with Think Zero, a NYC-based consulting firm specializing in waste reduction and diversion planning. The 30-story tower will be the first time Think Zero has partnered with a luxury condo, and if successful, hopes it can serve as a model for a variety of buildings citywide.

With NYC developers already reaching for a host of commendable accreditations (Wellness, Passive House, and LEED) to stand out from the crowd, Zero Waste may end up as one of the most tangible to the general public since certified buildings will not have mountain ranges of trash bags piled high on sidewalks several times a week.
The U.S. Zero Waste Business Council (USZWBC) defines Zero Waste as, “achieving over 90% diversion of waste from landfills, incinerators and the environment.” Through Think Zero’s guidance, 565 Broome hopes to hit the mark by implementing waste reduction strategies such as recycling, donation programs, providing Zero Waste amenities, and the establishment of a conscientious culture of creating less waste.
Think Zero will also work closely with the building’s staff and future occupants to create and implement a process to track waste. “Setting Zero Waste goals and implementing a Zero Waste program in a large luxury building involves a lot of upfront work and the cooperation of all stakeholders in the building, but the benefits are huge,” said Sarah Currie-Halpern, Founder and Partner of Think Zero.

As for the construction progress of 565 Broome, the building stands a dozen floors above street level and has passed its primary setback. The unique bifurcated design of rounded corners and full-height glass walls optimizes views of the surrounding city. While a glass curtain wall is not the most eco-conscious enclosure, the low-iron insulated glass does provide a greater degree of UV protection and energy efficiency when compared to other glass facades.
Many of 565 Broome’s 115 residences are already in contract. The nine homes currently listed for sale include 4 two-bedrooms priced from $4.025 million, 3 three-bedrooms priced from 5.8 million and two 4-bedrooms both asking for $14 million apiece.
