The Solaire is located at 20 River Terrace in Battery Park City, one of the most affluent neighborhoods in New York City with a view that spans from Jersey City in the west to a glimpse of the Empire State Building, the tallest building in NYC since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, standing above the rest of its surroundings. The Solaire was the first green residential-use building in New York City. Completed in 2003, it is described as an environmentally-progressive residential tower. The building has been rated U.S. Green Building Council LEED-NC, v2 – Level: Gold. The LEED ratings were established by the Green Building Council to evaluate a building's efforts to use renewable materials, conserve energy and water consumption and enhance indoor air quality. The energy conserving building design is 35% more energy-efficient than code requires, resulting in a 67% lower electricity demand during peak hours, resulting in (among other benefits):

  • Lower electric bills for residents
  • Photovoltaic panels convert sunlight to electricity
  • Computerized building management system and environmentally responsible operating and maintenance practices

Featuring climate smart energy choices and energy efficiency projects all across NYC! We were originally inspired to map energy in NYC by the Great Northeast Blackout of 2003, and published our first printed map on the topic in 2006. A continually evolving process, this new Open Green Map includes the best of the sites as of 2013. Want to help us add more to it?  Click Suggest a Site at the top!
