Green Rental Apartments by Meltzer/Mandl Rising at 40 Gold Street

This 56-unit development in lower Manhattan will feature a number of green building features across 62,000 square feet.

The Gold Street Apartments is a 62,000-square-foot rental development currently under construction at 40 Gold Street in lower Manhattan. The 14-story project broke ground back in June and was designed by Manhattan-based Meltzer/Mandl Architects. 56 studio and two-bedroom apartments will complement 5900 square feet of ground-floor and basement retail space.

Although the design includes a number of green design features, ranging from low-E windows and Energy Star-rated appliances to an efficient building envelope, it does not appear that the project is seeking any sort of LEED or other third-party certification.

The project team includes structural engineer Severud, mechanical and electrical engineer TSF Engineering, and general contractor MJM Construction Services. Occupancy is scheduled for June 2010.
