Progress Towards Platinum: Update on Mark Helder’s 439 Metropolitan Avenue

Brooklyn Independent Television will profile Mark Helder’s LEED Platinum-hopeful, mixed-use 439 Metropolitan project in Williamsburg.

Next Monday, March 10, Brooklyn Independent Television will air an episode of Brooklyn Review featuring the Reclaimed Home blog’s interview with architect Mark Helder, whose 439 Metropolitan Avenue project in Williamsburg is aiming for Gotham’s first mixed-use LEED Platinum rating. The segment will be part of the news magazine program’s A Walk Around the Blog series, which profiles different Brooklyn bloggers.

We presented Mr. Helder’s project a few weeks ago here at gbNYC in relatively little detail, noting that it will house his architecture studio, as well as two duplex condominium residences, a ground-floor art gallery, and feature passive solar design, radiant flooring, photovoltaics, and indoor air quality reaching HEPA standards. Helder told Reclaimed Home that the project is still on target for a July 2008 occupancy now that its time-consuming foundation work is complete. You can access the episode on BIT at Time Warner channel 56 or Cablevision 69- the network’s full listings are available here.
