the VISIONAIRE: Green luxury living in BPC

Sales are currently underway at The Visionaire a new luxury Green Condominium designed by Rafael Pelli on the Battery Park City waterfront.

The 35-story, 251-unit project, which is aiming for Platinum LEED certification, takes a bold step toward closing the gap between commercial and residential green design and builds upon the development/design team's other two Battery Park City green-breaking developments, The Solaire, the first high-rise residential project to be awarded LEED certification in the nation, and The Verdesian, which opened last year and is applying for Platinum LEED certification.

Photovoltaic panels in the facade harvest solar power to generate a portion of the building's electric load. The curtain wall was designed to highlight the river views. Even at the corners of each unit the view is unobstructed.

The Visionaire is another development by the Albanese Organization. Albanese has also developed The Solaire and The Verdesian in Battery Park City. The Visionaire will be the Albanese organization's third green building in Battery Park City and will be built on the last remaining residential plot in BPC.

The building will overlook the Museum of Jewish Heritage and will be distinguished by a curved fa├žade. The Battery Park City Parks Conservancy will occupy 40,000 SF of the building.

Exclusive resident-only amenities will include a skylit indoor swimming pool and hot tub; two landscaped roof gardens with private cabanas; rooftop entertainment area featuring built-in grills and wet bar, a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa; a screening room/lounge with fireplace; a private dining area; a children’s playroom and a parking garage.

Anticipated occupancy is Spring 2008. Current available units for sale range from:

  • 686 square foot studio for $795,000
  • 819 square foot One bedroom for $890,000
  • 1356 square foot Two Bedroom for $1,395,000
  • 1681 square foot Three bedroom 2.5 baths for $1,850,000
