Tomorrow morning, developers Jonathan Rose Companies and Malkin Properties will cut the ribbon and officially open Metro Green Apartments, a 50-unit affordable housing development in Stamford, Connecticut.  Located at 84 Henry Street, Metro Green was designed to achieve LEED Gold certification and it's already 90% leased.  As the first phase of a TOD which will include a total of 238 mixed-income residential and 350,000 square feet of Class A office, Metro Green gets this development started on the right foot.

At Metro Green, residents benefit from a number of green elements, including a rainwater harvesting system, a high-performance building envelope, bike storage room, energy-efficient mechanical systems, abundant natural light, and green building materials that use recycled, low-VOC components. 

If you're in the neighborhood, there will be a ribbon cutting from 10:30 am to noon at Metro Green on Monday, September 21, 2009.  The building was designed by Perkins Eastman Architects to exceed Enterprise Green Communities guidelines and built with a budget of approximately $20 million.

    Its great to see so many new green apartment complexes. Often apartments are the worst for energy efficiency. My apartment was built in the 70s and I have a lot of trouble with losing heat during the winter. Weather stripping can only go so far, but a green building like this will not have that trouble.
