Solaire was the first high-rise residential building to simultaneously use several advanced sustainable initiatives, such as outdoor air delivery to apartments (with winter humidification), black water treatment plant, storm water capture, green roofs, etc.  The chiller/heater system ensures an energy efficient operation.  Vidaris professionals performed energy and green/LEED analyses and participated in the commissioning of MEP systems.  The design team included Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects for design and SLCE for AOR.  The work was co-funded by the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority.
