The Visionaire is a high-rise 35-story residential tower in lower Manhattan with a 10-story base. It holds 250 condominiums, a children’s play area, spa, fitness center, pool, two roof gardens, below-grade parking, a convenience store, and an office for a Conservancy agency. The facade is comprised of a terra-cotta rainscreen curtain wall with low-e insulated glass and almost 4,500 sq. ft. of PV panels. Vidaris was involved with the consulting of the design as well as both mockup and site inspections. Sustainable features include photovoltaic panels at main roof bulkhead, a green roof, and low-e coated glass.
