1st Certified Passive Project in Manhattan


Manhattan has its first Passive Certified project 25 West 88th Street is both Passive Certified as well as certified LEED Platinum.

Meticulously restoring the Landmarked front facade and reinstalling the original stoop that was previously removed made for an exceptionally interesting project. The combination of Passive House certified construction and LEED Platinum requirements have raised the standards of historic restoration.
