Every apartment has fresh filtured air that is humidified or dehumidified depending on climate conditions. Each home is also centrally heated and cooled via a digital programmable thermostats. Superb city living is achieved here.

The Solaire was designed to consume 35% less energy, reduce peak demand for electricity by 65%, and require 50% less potable water than a conventional residential building. Multi-level humidification and ventilation systems supply filtered fresh air to each residential unit. Daylighting was maximized and balanced with the thermal envelope. Common areas include occupancy sensors and daylight sensors to further optimize energy use.

An on-site black water treatment system supplies the cooling tower and the toilets with water. A stormwater catchment system provides irrigation to both a rooftop garden and a green roof. More green features include year-round heating and quiet cooling controlled by digital programmable thermostats, building materials and paints with low of no off-gassing, 24/7 exhaust in every bath and kitchen, refrigerators with double filtered drinking water and ice dispensers with secondary filtration, a pesticide-free rooftop garden, and onsite bicycle storage area. The building was extensively commissioned and has sophisticated monitoring systems.

The Solaire also utilizes BuildingLink -- an internet-based communication system between tenants and management.  It serves as a hightly efficient tool  that manages daily operations and task tracking,  record keeping, and requests between tenants, building staff, and property managers.


Neighborhood / Parking / Transportation

Downtown on the West Side between the Hudson River on the West and South, the West Side Highway on the East, and Chambers Street on the North.

River views and river life are the big draw for seekers of Battery Park City apartments and condos. Because the land is technically owned by the Battery Park City Authority, a public entity, residents of these downtown condos don’t pay taxes, they pay PILOT — Payments in Lieu of Taxes — which help maintain the glorious esplanade which is Battery Park City’s crown jewel. The beautiful ribbon runs for 1.2 miles, linking together a string of kid- and pet-friendly parks, and many of Battery Park City’s condos look out on these wonderful bits of green to the Hudson beyond. Strolling, rollerblading, biking — or just catching a spectacular sunset or a close-up of the Statue of Liberty — they’re all perks attached to this wonderful downtown real estate.

The neighborhood, built on the Southwest tip of Manhattan, is both quiet and convenient. It offers luxury apartment living that seems almost suburban, but the area is near Wall Street for work and lively Tribeca for play. Riverhouse, one of the newest condominiums, offers twice-filtered air and filtered water — meeting an environmental standard for green living first set by the Solaire, a Battery Park City rental building that is the nation’s first environmentally-conscious high rise. A new Whole Foods and Barnes and Noble provide great shopping, while the Liberty Park greenmarket lets you get the best and freshest New York City produce, some of it from family farms. There’s also an 11-screen movie theater which screens both popular favorites and hosts part of the world-famous Tribeca Film Festival.
