Nation's first multistory green industrial facility opens in Brooklyn

October 01, 2009 |

The $25 million Perry Avenue Building at Brooklyn Navy Yard is the nation's first multilevel green industrial facility and the first building in New York to incorporate building-mounted wind turbines. The wind turbines, along with rooftop solar panels, will provide electricity for the building's lobby and common areas. The facility, which is on track to receive LEED Gold certification, incorporates other green features such as reflective roofing, the use of recycled rainwater in toilets, high-efficiency lighting, and natural ventilation. Designed by Stantec, the project is part of a $250 million capital funding program to make Brooklyn Navy Yard the greenest urban industrial center in America.
