Located in NoHo, 41 Bond is a prime example of excellence in sustainable architecture. The 4,800-square-foot building offers lucky residents a variety of green features such as an irrigated exterior planter system, green marquee and terrace systems, and a green cleaning program. Additionally, the building has a spectacular green roof that reduces stormwater runoff and saves energy on heating and cooling use.

On the interior, residents enjoy spacious 50-foot-long great rooms with bluestone fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass walls that offer expansive views of the 1,700 square foot backyard, private planted gardens and elaborate concrete cantilevered landscaped terraces.

The ULI Awards for Excellence program began in 1979 in order to recognize and reward superior design projects that offer more than just a pretty facade. The award looks beyond the superficial to find “examples of leadership, contribution to the community, innovations, public/private partnership, environmental protection and enhancement, response to societal needs, and financial success.”

This year’s ULI winners will be announced in October.
