Beach Green Dunes II

Beach Green Dunes II

The L+M Development Partners have received Passive House certification for the Beach Green Dunes II project located in Far Rockaway, NY. This new construction project consists of one mid-rise 8-story building designed to the rigorous Passive House standard. Beach Green Dunes II is immediately adjacent to its PHIUS+ 2015 Certified Passive House sister project Beach Green Dunes I; these unique projects have implemented different envelope and mechanical system strategies demonstrating that there are multiple paths to Passive House Compliance.

As part of the post Hurricane Sandy re-development of Far Rockaway, NY, Beach Green Dunes II has integrated a robust resiliency strategy with a central focus on Passive House design. Located on an exposed coastal site, the building design includes a flood mitigation strategy to protect occupants, maintain building services, and decrease building damage in the event of a future flooding incident. The ground floor is comprised of tenant parking, a commercial space and a residential lobby completed with dry and wet flood-proofing, wall flood vents and a durable masonry wall type. The residential apartments are exclusively located on the second floor and above to help protect occupants during flooding
