The Village Green is the very first LEED Gold–certified residential building in Manhattan’s East Village. As a new development in one of Manhattan’s most desired neighborhoods, the Village Green stands on its own as both a green building and a luxury residence.
The Village Green features everything desired in a luxury New York apartment, including floor-to-ceiling windows. These windows were made from green materials and were created to be energy efficient and to maximize the natural light spilling into the room. With included air filtration systems and water conservation methods, residents will be helping to conserve energy without even thinking about it.
The apartment features oak hardwood floors, but residents should rest assured that these were certified green as well. The units each feature a heating and cooling system, but this system is ultra energy efficient as it uses the building’s geothermal cooling and wind power to run. The bathroom continues with efficient luxury, and the kitchens are well stocked with brand-name, energy-efficient appliances.
The luxury amenities include those traditional to Manhattan living, including a doorman, concierge, storage and bike room. The ultra-modern fitness center and sauna are well loved among residents.
The location easily serves as an amenity. Manhattan’s East Village is an incredibly popular, hip neighborhood. With easy access to the subway and other transit options, commuters will find the rest of the city easily at hand. Plus, public transportation is another way to live green, and it’s recommended for those wishing to lessen their carbon footprints.
