Joining the growing ranks of eco-minded architecture throughout New York City (and the country) is 465 Washington Street, a Tribeca apartment building that will be enlarged and retrofitted to passive house standards. The building has been in the works for about a year and a half, but a new rendering provides a first look at what to expect on the site between Watts and Canal streets.
Project architect Zakrzewski + Hyde is doubling the size of the existing five-story building to create space for seven zero-net-waste condominiums. The building will also feature a roof deck on a sixth-floor recess.
Zakrzewski + Hyde also has their hands in a Brooklyn passive house project at 852 St. John's Place in Crown Heights. Developer Justin Stewart, also behind 23 Park Place, is building a five-story, seven-apartment building on the site between Nostrand and New York avenues that will replace a run-down three-story building.
