New Yorkers looking to rent apartments that are just as sustainable as they are high-end have a new building to choose from, Crystal Green in Midtown, Manhattan. Luxury rental company Glenwood launched leasing for the property last month and in addition to opulence, the 25-story Midtown West building also boasts a design that strives for LEED certification.
Crystal Green is Glenwood’s second sustainably built rental, and is located at 330 West 39th Street in the same Midtown neighborhood as Glenwood’s first sustainable property; Emerald Green. “Midtown West stands as one of the most exciting and dynamic neighborhoods in Manhattan,” noted Glenwood Management’s Executive Vice President Gary Jacob. “As a company, we’re also dedicated to sustainable development and have built this property according to LEED guidelines in our pledge to help make a positive impact on the environment while enriching the lifestyle of our residents.”
Crystal Green has 200 luxury apartments in layouts ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. Designed by Stephen B Jacobs Group, Crystal Green’s interior design boasts high percentages of recycled materials that have been regionally sourced from the Northeast. All homes have sustainable bamboo wood flooring, which adds a feeling of environmental sophistication to the homes’ interior design. The building was designed for energy efficiency and lower water consumption. Energy Star appliances dot every kitchen and laundry, and lighting sensors also help to keep the energy use low when people aren’t occupying the building.
Crystal Green is centrally located and is within walking distance of Penn Station. Though it may be in a wonderfully vibrant and active neighborhood, this luxury homestead offers 24-hour lobby attendants, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a children’s play center, and a recreation lounge, which will collectively help create a peaceful and relaxing environment for an instant getaway. So if you are interested in a new place to live in Midtown Manhattan give Glenwood a call.
