New York, NY
Archstone Clinton, located on the West Side of Midtown Manhattan, is one of first residential buildings in NYC which has been designed to be a "Green" building and obtain LEED certification. Additionally, the project benefited from enrollment in NYSERDA's "New Construction" program and the project received an incentive of approximately $160,000 per building for installation of energy conservation measures such as; co-generation system utilizing environmentally friendly micro-turbines, high efficiency condensing boilers, variable speed pumping and high efficiency glazing. The residential towers are projected to save approximately 33% in annual energy costs when compared against a code-compliant residential building design.
Sustainable features include: high-efficiency glazing on windows to reduce heat transfer; building designed to maximize natural light and views; daylight dimming system controls artificial lighting according to the natural daylight levels to conserve energy; high-efficiency condensing boiler equipment installed that use less fuel and result in less pollution; variable-speed hot water pumps adjust water flow to demand to reduce energy use; quality and quantity of fresh indoor air provided to the building is tracked; co-generation with environmentally friendly micro-turbines create green power from renewable sources.
