This innovative exposed concrete-framed residential tower by Rafael Vinoly Architects, rising 1,397 feet tall, was the tallest building in New York City to roofline upon its completion. The 128 residences feature large glazed windows (10’ by 10’) and 12-foot ceilings. The base of the building has a three-story glass atrium retail component.
As the exterior wall consultant, Vidaris assisted in delineating performance criteria for the large-sized windows, developing the details and technical criteria for weatherproofing them, and then monitoring the fabrication and on-site erection. Additionally, Vidaris performed building energy modeling, thermal analysis, sustainable design assist, specifications, as well as LEED monitoring during construction.
LPI, an affiliate of Vidaris, performed LEED Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning. The post-occupancy engagement process of the enhanced commissioning is in progress. To enable the client receives financial incentives from NYSERDA, LPI is also performing focused review and testing of select energy efficiency measures.
