The Edge in Williamsburg is taking environmental sustainability very seriously. The proof? It’s the largest residential development in New York to achieve LEED Gold status.
The highly-regarded seal of sustainability and green friendliness is not easy to achieve, but thanks to The Edge‘s high scores in several categories, it was awarded the auspicious title. The Brooklyn development achieved top marks for its use of renewable and local material as well as energy and water conservation.
LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a ratings system developed by the US Green Buildings Council to measure the environmental sustainability of a building. Gold is the second highest status that a building can achieve.
The Edge‘s status also makes it one of the greenest buildings in the country — no small feat.
With Stephen B. Jacobs Group on architecture and Andi Pepper on interior design, The Edge seems to be offering the full lux package along with its unabashed commitment to the environment.
Like it? Who couldn’t? Hopefully more New York condos take their cues from The Edge and commit to LEED Gold.
