NEW YORK CITY—One Jackson Square has received LEED Silver certification, says Hines, the international real estate firm.
One Jackson Square, an 11-story, 30-unit luxury residential condominium facing a small urban park, is located in Greenwich Village Historic District. The project contains 60,000 residential sq. ft. and includes retail and residential amenity spaces totaling 7,300 sq. ft. on the ground floor and basement levels. One Jackson Square was designed by architect William Pedersen of Kohn Pedersen Fox, and was awarded an American Institute of Architects national design honor award in May 2011. The property was developed by Hines and RFR.
Responsible construction choices ensure energy efficiency, optimal indoor air quality and eco-friendly design, including multiple terraces and a green roof that comprises more than 20 percent of the overall site area. Other green features implemented at the property include: reduction of potable water consumption by selecting plantings that require only watering from rainfall, installation of ENERGY STAR® appliances in each of the 30 units and providing secured bicycle storage for at least 15 percent of the building’s residential occupants.
The residential condominium units at One Jackson Square average $2,168 per sq. ft., and were 100 percent sold out in May 2011. The retail condominium at One Jackson Square, which includes tenants Starbucks and TD Bank, was recently sold to American Realty Capital.
