“New Yorkers are the highest-performing people in the world. When they come home, they want to relax, escape, reenergize. That’s what we’re creating at Chelsea Green and each of our buildings.” – Mike Namer, CEO & founder, Alfa Development
With more than 8.5 million people, New York City has by far America’s largest urban population. The city’s storied architectural history has also given rise to one of the nation’s most demanding design communities. Chelsea Green Condominiums, a recently constructed 14-story building located at 151 West 21st St., sets the bar high for a new generation of mixed-use multifamily developments.
Project architect Stephen B. Jacobs Group noted Chelsea Green Condominiums is targeting LEED Gold certification. The design team integrated the most advanced systems to maximize energy efficiency, resource conservation and indoor air quality, such as solar-thermal panels on the roof as a primary source of hot water heating, a heat recovery system that tempers cold air and delivers filtered fresh air year round, a state-of-the-art central heating and cooling system that allows for convenient zone control and a green roof with a rainwater irrigation system.
To ensure the goals were met, Kawneer worked closely with installer Kilroy Architectural Windows and prominent NYC-exclusive Alfa Development to create an elegant building façade that would be both unique and high performing.
