Some interesting green news appeared today on GlobeSt.com regarding United American Land’s SoHo Mews project at 311 West Broadway (image via GlobeSt.). The developer told GlobeSt. that “SoHo Mews will not seek LEED certification and [we have] no plans to add sustainable elements to the development of the two towers, beyond the garden that will sit between them.” The article offered no further details about United American Land’s decision. The 175,000 square foot project consists of two residential buildings, one facing West Broadway, the other straddling Grand and Canal Streets while facing Wooster Street, offering fifty-nine two and three bedroom units, five two-story townhouses, and four penthouses. Prices start at $2.1 million and range as high as $11 million. Fall 2008 occupancy is expected. Urban Land also tells GlobeSt. that the developer is in negotiations with a “top marquee chef” for a restaurant on the West Broadway tower’s ground floor. The buildings were designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects; the garden between them by landscape architect Peter Walker.
