Green Condos in Manhattan
Many Manhattan Condo buyers are going green. LEED certified homes combine systems that together create a holistically green building that is much more than energy savings. Energy, indoor air quality, water consumption, sustainable sites, landscaped roofs all create an envornmentally friendly building.
To receive LEED certificate a building has to earn 26 of 69 points on a scale created by the (LEED) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, the country's most popular green benchmark. Certification of silver, gold or platunum can happen up to a year after the building is completed. Green buildings are required to be 14 per cent more efficient than regular building codes dictate.
