Earlier this week, Brownstoner’s Development Watch checked in with Amie Gross Architects’ LEED Platinum hopeful 575 Fifth Avenue project in Park Slope. The 49-unit affordable housing development broke ground last August and is now two stories out of the ground; developer Fifth Avenue Committee expects an early 2010 occupancy.
As we noted previously, the 5-story, $8 million project includes, among other green features, an efficient, gas-powered HVAC system and recycled-content structural materials. The development is at the corner of 5th Avenue and 16th Street and sits on the site of a former muncipal parking garage. Steven Winter Associates is the project’s LEED consultant.
