Last week, Brooklyn’s Third+Bond condominium development in Gowanus earned Kings County’s second LEED Platinum rating from USGBC. (You may recall the first: Park Slope’s Silhouette condominiums, a 5500-square-foot development that we’ve written about previously here at gbNYC.)
Located just a block from the Gowanus Canal on – you guessed it – Third and Bond Streets, the project was designed by Tribeca-based Rogers Marvel Architects and built by The KiSKA Group. Like The Silhouette before it, Third+Bond simultaneously pursued an Energy Star rating from EPA under its program for new homes.
Green features are what you would expect: locally sourced materials, double pane windows, and FSC-certified wood. Appliances in each unit are Energy Star-rated; low-VOC paints and sealants were used throughout. Efficient heating and cooling systems are also controlled within each unit and lighting systems have automatic dimmers.
Developed by Hudson, Third+Bond earned its Platinum rating under the LEED for Homes system. Studios and one- to three-bedroom layouts – including duplexes with garden space – range from the low $300s to over seven figures.
