100 Gold Street First Green Building in VH

greenbuildingsNYC has new information and renderings for 100 Gold Street, a 5 story, 10 unit condominium development in Vinegar Hill we previously posted about. Per greenbuildingsNYC:

9-foot windows will provide ample natural daylight and Manhattan views for residents; gas-fired, wall-hung boilers in each unit should save up to 40 percent on heating costs. Recycled glass tile will be used for backsplashes in each kitchen and zero-VOC paints throughout are being supplied by Brooklyn-based Ivy Coatings. Other materials sourced locally include recycled-content roof pavers manufactured by Saugerties-based Unity Creations and hand-blown light fixtures by Beacon-based Niche Modern. Green features will also include on-site bicycle storage, dual flush toilets, and compact fluorescent lights throughout. REDD also intends to purchase renewable energy credits to offset the building’s projected energy consumption during its first year of operation.

They also note that the project doesn’t appear to be seeking a 3rd party certification (such as LEED).
