Green building is bursting at the seams in New York, and if you don’t believe me, just read Green Buildings NYC.  The REDD Group shot us an email of a project they’re working on in Brooklyn (or more specifically, Vinegar Hill and Dumbo) called 100 Gold.  They tell us 100 Gold is one of the first green residential developments in the area, which is surprising considering all the activity I read about on gbNYC.  The 10-unit, condo building will open a model apartment on Earth Day, April 22, 2009.  Here is what to expect from 100 Gold:


  • Radiant floor heating
  • Energy-efficient mechanical systems
  • Operable floor-to-ceiling windows
  • Abundant interior natural light
  • Energy Star appliances
  • Water-efficient dual-flush toilets
  • Zero-VOC Ivy Coatings paints
  • Recycled finishing materials
  • Locally-made hand blown glass light fixtures
  • Roof pavers made from 100% recycled tires
  • Rooftop gardens with landscaping and deck

The place will have free storage, a 15-year tax abatement, and bicycle storage, etc.  In total, 100 Gold comprises six one bedroom units, two duplex studios—one with a private yard, and two duplex apartments with one bedroom, loft, and private terraces.  Current prices range from $525k – $935k.
