Nation's First Multi-Story Green Industrial Facility Opens In NYC

The nation's first multi-story green industrial facility opened at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Mayor Bloomberg also announced the creation of Duggal Greenhouse, a 60,000-square-foot LEED Platinum certified facility that will be used to manufacture eco-friendly products and will become a laboratory for new sustainable products.

These and other green initiatives underway at the Navy Yard will create 1,700 new permanent jobs, 40 percent of which will be green industry jobs. The projects will also create more than 800 construction jobs.

The expansion of the Brooklyn Navy Yard and creation of green sector jobs is part of the City's Five Borough Economic Opportunity Plan to create jobs for New Yorkers today, implement a vision for long-term economic growth, and build affordable, attractive neighborhoods.

The $25 million Perry Avenue Building, which is on track to receive LEED Gold certification, features the first permanent building-mounted wind turbines to be operating anywhere in New York City. Along with the building's rooftop solar panels, the turbines will provide electricity for the building's lobby and other common areas.

The facility incorporates other green features such as reflective roofing and pavement to reduce surface temperatures, the use of recycled rain water in toilets, recycled building materials, high-efficiency lighting fixtures, natural ventilation systems and special accommodation for bicyclists and low-emission vehicles. The three-story, 89,000-square-foot Perry Building will be leased to SurroundArt, which will create a Museum Resource Campus to serve the art industry and institutions in New York City and beyond.

New Construction: The Solaria in Riverdale

The Solaria is the tallest building in Riverdale. The sleek 20-story, 65-unit Solaria offers floor-to-ceiling glass apartments, most with balconies.

Rising high above the cityscape, most residences feature oversized balconies that graciously expand private living areas and offer breathtaking views from sunrise to sunset. Awe-inspiring protected vistas including the Hudson River, Palisades, George Washington Bridge, Long Island Sound, Van Cortland Park and Manhattan.

Solaria’s kitchens are stylishly efficient and stunningly appointed with spacious cherry wood cabinetry, granite countertops and top-of-the-line Viking, Fisher & Paykel, and Dacor appliances. Storage and countertop space are abundant. Each kitchen has an operable window through which sunlight streams in.

Master Baths are posh and inviting, with Jerusalem stone walls and floors, stone countertops and cherry wood vanities with dual sinks, Toto toilets and radiant-heated floors. Luxuriate in the deep, Zuma soaking tub or frameless glass-enclosed shower. Provide your children or guests with complete privacy because every bedroom was designed to have a dedicated bathroom. Abated taxes and low Common Charges complete the package at Solaria.

The building offers Manhattan quality in Riverdale. Riverdale once NYC's best-kept secret has quality public schools for students from kindergarten to 12th grade; parks; and convenient transportation to Manhattan by bus, subway, and commuter rail. Riverdale has many stately castle-like homes and the neighborhood has elite private schools including Fieldston, Riverdale Country School, and Horace Mann.
