Event Description

Join AIA New York, New York State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA), and Magnusson Architecture and Planning (MAP) for a presentation of three award-winning Buildings of Excellence projects. The innovative Linden Boulevard Phase II, Rheingold Senior Housing, and 2050 Grand Concourse projects—all new construction—will be highlighted. Each of these high-rise residential buildings are comprised of affordable-housing units; employ advanced technologies; are pursuing LEED, PHIUS, and Enterprise Green Community certification; and are located in either Brooklyn or the Bronx. The three projects embody the goals of the Buildings of Excellence Competition by being low-carbon emitting, replicable, comfortable for occupants, and connected to the surrounding communities. Presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
