The Edge, a four building development on the Brooklyn waterfront in Williamsburg, checks in at #12 on New York Construction magazine’s list of the top twenty projects started in 2006-2007 at $390 million. Designed by Stephen B. Jacobs Group for owner Douglaston Development, the project will seek a LEED Silver rating under Version 2.2 for New Construction after breaking ground back in April. A summer 2009 occupancy is expected for close to 1,000 condominium units (ranging in price from $500,000 to $3 million) across a thirty-story tower, a fifteen-story tower, and two six- to eight-story buildings. Green design features include energy-efficient mechanical systems, environment-friendly refrigerants, green roofs, water-efficient plumbing fixtures, an enhanced building commissioning program, and tobacco smoke control. The project also remediates a former brownfield and includes access to a water taxi pier and waterfront esplanade. The general contractor on the project is Levine Builders, with mechanical engineer Edwards & Zuck and structural engineer Thornton Tomasetti.
