GreenWorks on Grove Seeks LEED-CS Silver in Montclair, New Jersey

With direct access to Midtown nearby, this adaptive reuse project in Montclair will provide its three commercial tenants with direct electrical submetering and other advanced green building technologies.

An interesting adaptive reuse project is underway over in Montclair, New Jersey. Designed by Sionas Architecture and built by Jack Finn & Company for owner Cadbury Properties , GreenWorks on Grove will convert the site of a former gas station into a three-unit speculative commercial retail building at 100 Grove Street in suburban Montclair.

The project is applying for a Silver rating under USGBC’s LEED for Core and Shell system; tenants who choose to build their spaces out under LEED for Commercial Interiors will find each outfitted with individual electricity submeters, which should allow for a true implementation of green leases across the board. The building is located less than a half mile from the direct New Jersey Transit train to Midtown and will offer tenants access to bicycle racks and changing rooms.

Other green core and shell features include high-performance glass, insulation, and HVAC systems, as well as building-integrated photovoltaics (supplying up to 20 percent of the development’s power) and native landscaping. Renée Realty serves as the project’s leasing agent. Thanks to Joel Patenaude of Cadbury for the great tip!

    I think it’s really great that Greenworks is converting an old, non-environmentally friendly business to a very GREEN building. I can’t wait for other businesses to start following their lead. Love the idea of bike racks and changing rooms. Thanks for the neat post.

    Be thankful for the green demand up in NYC. There are those of us stuck in Atlanta where only transplants and young college crowd are interested in consuming green business products. Our only option to break into solar power is to start small with hot water heating units.

    Our first spam comment with the new comments section! Milestone of milestones. Nice to know that apartment-rental spammers in Dubai are paying attention to green commercial in North Jersey.
