577 W 161st Street, NY, NY
This is a 6-story, mixed use building with cellar that is currently undergoing construction on West 161st St in Manhattan, NY. The building is being designed to Passive House standards in order to provide a better living experience, with emphasis placed on providing both exterior and interior insulation at the exterior walls while also minimizing heat loss and heat gain to reduce the need for a large heating system. The building intends to achieve significant operational savings over a standard building.
The first floor will have a medical office, with additional space in the cellar. Residential units will be on the 2-6th floor. There is an outdoor recreation space at the rear.
The project has an anticipated completion date of May 2018.
