A new project in Greenwich Village is bringing a mix of modern luxury and green building to the historic West Village district. Architect William Pederson, with international real estate firm Hines, recently announced the design for One Jackson Square. With an eye-catching glass façade and a host of environmentally sound features, the new development will be Greenwich Village’s first LEED-certified multi-unit luxury condominium.
One Jackson Square will provide 35 loft condominium residences on 11 floors, each with floor-to-ceiling views of the surrounding neighborhood. Eight of the condos have outdoor spaces, and the penthouse boasts a 1,670 square-foot roof terrace. On the luxury side, the building offers a round the clock concierge, valet parking, plush lounge area and catering kitchen. On site facilities include a fully stocked exercise room and a luxury spa.
The sustainable aspects of One Jackson Square include multiple terraces and a green roof which covers about 20% of the total site. Native and low maintenance landscaping was selected to reduce water consumption. Efficient HVAC systems lower the building’s overall energy usage. And, the construction materials were chosen to lower the building’s environmental impact, as well as improve indoor air quality for residents. Construction waste was kept to a minimum and much of it recycled.
