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!
