Four-Story Greenpoint Passive House Project Advances

The energy-efficient building will bring seven apartments to the 'hood

Freeman Street in Greenpoint is now thismuch closer to having that uber energy-efficient passive house that it's been promised since at least 2014. The four-story, seven-apartment building which will adhere to strict energy standards helping tenants save on heating, lighting, and things of the like just got a permit renewal by the Department of Buildings meaning work will continue on the already-advancing site. Work began on the building in 2014, and as of September, its shell was on the rise.

Brooklyn-based firm loadingdock5 has been brought on to design the building between Franklin Street and Manhattan Avenue. The project, which will go by Haus, will have seven 700 square foot apartments each with either a balcony or garden. loadingdock5 is no stranger to passive house projects, with work out in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Williamsburg, and the Columbia Street Waterfront District.
