Designed by renowned architect Robert A. M. Stern, the 357,000 square foot tower -- located on Battery Park City's site 19B at 325 North End Avenue -- features 274 rental apartments, each equipped with a host of environmentally-friendly features. From energy-producing solar panels on the roof and high-efficiency Energy Star appliances, Tribeca Green has been designed to reduce energy use by as much as 25 percent more than is called for by the New York State Energy Code. The building also offers healthier indoor air quality and substantially more natural light than typical residential buildings.
"Tribeca Green is another critically important construction project for Lower Manhattan and a model for future residential development in New York City and across the nation," Gov. George Pataki said in a statement. "The completion of this elegant, environmentally responsible tower is yet another signal that downtown's resurgence is well underway."
