Green building by Robert Scarano to open in Brighton Beach
The project could be the first multifamily structure to score a Living Building certification
Scarano’s latest project is set to open this April in Brighton Beach with the name Bright ‘n Green, according to Curbed. The six-unit condo building is absolutely covered in solar panels and it is possible that this could be the first multifamily development in the country to score a Living Building certification, which has the toughest standards for green structures.
Pricing will range from $325,000 for the smallest studio to $850,000 for the largest two-bedroom. Not bad, considering that 133 solar panels, rooftop turbines, sophisticated rainwater collection and filtration systems, and electromagnetic cooktops should basically eliminate the utility bill.
