Green Condo Project from Barry Rice Breaks Ground at 180 East 93rd Street

A growing number of new condo developments on the Upper East Side are implementing sustainable design features.

Designed by Barry Rice Architects, Greystone Property Development’s 180 East 93rd Street broke ground last week and joins a growing crop of green condo projects on the Upper East Side (including the Laurel, Lucida, and Observatory Place). The condominiums will feature a number of green design features, including a geothermal heating and cooling system. The nine-unit development will rise on the south side of East 93rd Street between Lexington and Third Avenues, though it’s unclear whether the team will seek any sort of third-party certification for its efforts.

Most of the three- and four-bedroom units will include outdoor terrace space that will be irrigated by the development’s graywater system, while interiors will also feature recycled-content and low-VOC materials and finishes. Some flash renderings are currently available via Rice’s website here; the project should be completed in time for a spring 2009 occupancy.
