Developed by Hines and RFR, One Jackson Square is a 36-unit, 11-story condominium project under construction in the West Village that will seek an unspecified level of LEED certification from USGBC. KPF (5 WTC, Court Square Two) principal William Pedersen designed the building, which sits on an irregularly-shaped 10,697 square foot floor plate on the stretch of Greenwich Avenue between West 13th and 14th Streets. Prices are approximately $2,400 per square foot for the 51,000 square feet of saleable residential space, ranging from $2.12 million to $7.4 million. Twenty percent of the units are sold, while 7,500 square feet of ground floor retail space has yet to be leased. Occupancy is expected sometime in 2009. Links and more after the jump.

Specific green design details do not appear to be available yet. However, the design team will aim to optimize indoor air quality, install high-performance building systems, and will include a green roof that will cover more than twenty percent of the total site footprint. Pedersen’s design attempts to mimic a rock in water, with ripples flowing outward. The building is also across the street from Jackson Square Park, a small greenery dating from the 1800s with a similarly awkward site plan thanks to the 1811 Commissioner’s Plan that created Manhattan’s grid system. We’ll be keeping an eye on this project as construction proceeds, but One Jackson Square looks to be a beautiful, sustainable addition to an extremely historic area of lower Manhattan.
