Passive House design continues its rise in popularity in New York City, moving from private home design to commercial and large-scale residential. The latest and greatest of the bunch, however, may be Perch Harlem


Currently under construction at 542 West 153rd Street, the building, which topped out this month, is the city's first-ever market-rate Passive House design.

The project is being developed by Synapse Development Group with Taurus Investment Holdings and will boast 34 units when complete. By following specific sustainability standards, the structure stands out thanks to its superior workmanship, and notably, its sleek, white, asymmetrical facade.

Low energy bills and exceptional indoor air quality are additional perks for future residents.
