Location:New York, NY
Architect:Robert Stern Architects
Client:The Related Companies L.P.

The building has an efficient heat pump system with heating coil bypass for winter operation.  A gas-fired microturbine and photovoltaics contribute to the energy efficiency.  Good indoor air quality is provided by low-emission finishes and mechanically-filtered, air-conditioned, winter-humidified air.  Other sustainable design elements include a black water treatment plant, storm water reuse for irrigation and green roof.  The energy and green analyses were performed by the Energy/Green/Commissioning group of another company.  The design team included Robert Stern Architects and lsmael Leyva Architects.  The work was co-funded by the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority.
