The antidote to sky-high electrical bills in new construction condos may be architect Robert Scarano’s green condo project at 67 Brighton 1 Lane in Brighton Beach. The building will sell energy back to the grid, and residents should have very low or no utility bills, as we wrote in November. There will also be composting toilets and a hot tub, said a story today in The New York Daily News.
In November, we wrote that marketing had started for the building, with six units priced from $295,000 for a studio to $795,000 for a two-bedroom loft with outdoor space. The New York Daily News says sales will start in April, with prices slightly higher than they were in November. Prices will start at $325,000 for a studio and go up to $850,000 for a two-bedroom with two baths. The building does not yet have its certificate of occupancy and no listings have gone up yet.
The development cost about $600 per square foot to build, or about two times the average in New York City, according to the Daily News.
