With any luck, ground will be broken on New York City’s first sustainable zero-energy homes within the next three months. The new 4,000-square-foot building will be on Dikeman Street in Red Hook and is being designed by Dumbo-based Garrison Architects. “Bringing to bear exciting new building materials, improved wind and solar technologies and more energy-efficient HVAC and home appliances, as well as state of the art sustainability strategies, Redhook Green will be a powerful answer to the question of what urban centers can do to reduce our dependency on foreign oil via renewable resources and to significantly reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, said the building’s developer, Jay Amato, in a press release. You can read more details aboutRed Hook Green, as the project is called, on its website.
