211W29 is a new 24 story passive house rental project that will be a mixed use, mixed income rental building in the heart of Manhattan.  To reflect the changing needs of this neighbor, which is a mix of students, creative professions and longtime garment and fur distributors, the building will provide a variety of apartment layouts ranging from studio to three bedroom units.

Not only committed to developing a building that reflects the diversity of NYC, 211W29 also endeavors to provide a new standard of comfort in rental apartments by meeting the Passive House criteria.  Passive House construction delivers a higher quality of construction which includes continuous filtered air, triple glazed windows to reduced street noise, and an overall lower consumption of energy for the entire building.  In effect those living at 211W29 will be residing at one of the most energy efficient buildings in the city.   Functionality and beauty will not be secondary to the sustainable goals of 211W29, amenities will include a 24/7 doorman, bike storage, a gym, and laundry.

This project is currently under construction.
