Magnusson Architects aim for LEED Gold with affordable housing project 

The proposed building is 6.5 stories with 40 rental units and includes exterior as well as covered parking for building residents. The current design includes a large community facility on the uppermost floor adjacent to an extensive green roof.

The building Integrates passive solar heating with daylight design, will have green/high performance features with smart building technology and is being developed following the principles of Integrated Design.

The building will pursue LEED for Homes Gold certification and the NYSERDA Multifamily 'Energy Star Green Affordable Housing program'.

The project will integrate over 50 kW of solar photovoltaic panels to produce electricity for the building on the uppermost roof, as a shade canopy for the 6th floor and lobby, and south-facing building integrated fa├žade (BIPV). The systems would be capable of producing over 50,000 kWh/year.
