RISMEDIA, May 8, 2009-Located in the heart of the East Village, 311 E 11: Village Green is the perfect fusion of modern elegance and 21st century technology. Targeted to be the first LEED-Gold certified building in the East Village, 311 E 11: Village Green raises the bar for elegant solutions to serious environmental issues.
Designed by Michael and Izak Namer, Village Green was designed with a combination of sustainable and renewable materials and an innovative philosophy. The Namers are supporting wind power to generate sustainable and renewable electricity and are installing water-conserving fixtures throughout. A green roof will be installed to provide natural insulation and to reduce the “heat island effect,” and special drains will recover rainwater to reduce potable water required to irrigate gardens in the building.
Additional responsible and eco-friendly features include Energy Star appliances and low emission paints, sealants, coolants, and coatings used throughout the building. Innovative features include built-in recycling centers in the kitchen, lighting controls to reduce energy consumption in common areas during off-peak hours, and biothermal A/C and heating for the lobby and wellness center. Other features include energy efficient insulation and sealants, bicycle storage, and discount parking for hybrid vehicles at a nearby parking garage.
True to its holistic philosophy, the building will have a Wellness Center to provide a healthy way to live by allowing residents to exercise in a fully-equipped gym, relax in the spa that features a sauna and a private massage room.
Featuring natural stone floors and embroidered accent walls, the 24-hour attended lobby is heated and cooled using geothermal energy, representing the perfect fusion of modern elegance and 21st century technology. The spacious one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and penthouse homes, ranging from approximately 730 square feet to 2,000 square feet, have been designed to appeal to educated consumers of an environmentally-conscious mind and sophisticated aesthetic.
Floor-to-ceiling, double insulated windows create an open, light-filled space and FSC-certified, sustainable 4″-wide white oak wood floors and custom Italian doors heighten the airy effect. Quartzite counters, energy efficient appliances from Bosch and Liebherr, and custom made zero-VOC cabinets from Euromobil Italia are details of the spacious, gourmet kitchens. Eco-friendly touches are matched with the finest finishes. Master baths are the ultimate sanctuary with their deep soaking tubs, Persian green marble countertops, pure white crystallized glass walls, and a custom Euromobil Italia vanity. Contemporary Toto Ethos faucets for sink, shower, and bath help conserve water.
