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.
