Nation's first multi-story green industrial facility opens in Brooklyn

Nation's first multi-story green industrial facility opens in Brooklyn


August 11, 2010


        
     
The $25 million Perry Avenue Building at Brooklyn Navy Yard is the nation's first multi-level 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 and pavement to reduce surface temperatures, the use of recycled rain water in toilets, recycled building materials, high-efficiency lighting fixtures, natural ventilation systems, and special accommodation for bicyclists and low-emission vehicles.

The three-story, 89,000-sf Perry Building will be leased to SurroundArt, which will create a Museum Resource Campus to serve the art industry and institutions in New York City and beyond. The project is part of a $250 million capital funding program to make Brooklyn Navy Yard the greenest urban industrial center in America.
