The Future is Now!
Green technology and space age designs are currently under construction throughout Manhattan.
High Line 23 or HL23 (shown) is a new green building from Neil M. Denari Architects that is currently under construction in the West Chelsea art gallery district at West 23rd Street and 10th Avenue.
The structure is a 14 floor mixed use of gallery space and condominiums with amazing views of the new High Line elevated park.
The condo will include nine floor-through apartments ranging in size from about 1,850 square feet to 2,600 square feet. Prices range from $2,750,000 to $10,500,000 for the 3700 square foot penthouse duplex unit with a terrace.
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.
