Lowdown: Joining the green party is the South Slope's Silhouette, a small building that's hoping to pull in buyers with energy and water efficiency and use of recycled materials. No trendy wind turbines here, but the building does want you to know it's LEED-Platinum certified and "the hardwood flooring is all reclaimed white oak from existing warehouses sparing 1/6 of an acre of timber forest." Since the only building amenity advertised in the listings is a bike rack, it looks like the building doesn't just talk the talk, it also rides the, uh, bike ride. And, happy belated Earth Day, the developer will pay closing costs through the end of the month.
