bld architecture is designing a new 75,000 gsf cold storage distribution center in the hunts point section of the bronx, ny. the greenmarket company has been connecting local upstate farmers with nyc communities since 2012 to help keep fresh, healthy food affordable. the new distribution center includes large loading dock spaces and cold refrigerated storage for the distribution of locally grown fruits and vegetables at wholesale distribution level.

Vanderbilt Financial Group

The owner of this project is an Independent Broker Dealer whose principals attended a local USGBC chapter training class in green buildings back in 2012. Shortly after that they purchased an existing building with the goal of creating a green and sustainable workplace for their staff to move into. Electric car charging stations were installed and the owners have also made them available to their neighbors. The stations were funded in part by a NYSERDA grant which offset 85% of the direct material cost.

Sunset Green Home

The Sunset Green Home in Long Island, New York – once a charming 1940s cottage resting five feet above sea level – was damaged by Hurricane Irene in 2011 and decimated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. In 2015, however, the tide is turning as the home is being rebuilt as the first certified LEED® Platinum home in Long Island. According to homeowner Kim Erle, who is also a LEED AP and team leader on the sustainable, energy-efficient renovation, moisture management was a top-of-mind issue as blueprints were drawn and building materials specified. The issue took precedence for good reason, too.
