Just ask our own Sustainable Design Director, Jennifer Preston, who recently shared her insights on the future of New York City’s multifamily residential market with The Observer.  In her words, “the concept of not paying an energy bill is not that crazy. And I wish people asked for it, because we could do it.”

The article also highlight’s The Jefferson, our most recently completed multifamily project, which boasts a blue roof and a centrifugal action stormwater sediment separator. The project is on track to receive LEED Gold certification and is expected to earn all available stormwater credits, a rare accomplishment for an urban building.
