Are you looking for a new energy efficient, super insulated building near the beach? How about one with on-site electricity production handled by a large solar photovoltaic array? It’s coming to the Rockaways!
If all goes according to plan, the project will break ground this summer and will be “passive building” certified. For residents, that means extreme comfort all seasons with no drafts and superb indoor air quality with constant low level energy recovering ventilation.
Hopefully the rest of that area’s development (Design Finalists For Future Rockaway Development) will follow without delay.
Here are the details from the filing: eight-story, 101-unit 93,812 square feet mixed-use building with commercial space and 35 parking spaces
24 units to households earning an annual income up to $28,435 for an individual and $38,850 for a household of three.
26 units to households earning an annual income up to $34,485 for an individual and $46,620 for a household of three.
50 units will be affordable to households earning up to $41,450 for an individual and $62,150 for a household of three.
The building will feature a beautifully designed roof garden alongside a terrace on the 7th floor. The terrace and garden will provide unparalleled views of the beach and ocean.
Amenities include at-grade and terrace green spaces, on-site laundry facilities, recreational space, bike storage, and on-site at grade parking.
