Event Details

Join GreenHomeNYC Saturday, October 13th as we tour 179 Rivington Street a tricolored, sawtooth-roofed, five-story residential building sheathed in zinc, brick and concrete as a laboratory of sustainable architecture and green-building practices. 

Here are a few of the features you will see on the tour:
  • Solar panels along the south-facing ''teeth'' of the roof draw enough power to make this family's Con Ed bill a wash each month
  • A garden around the top floor absorbs storm water and forms a soft, green canopy that cools the roof a notch or two each summer
  • Skylights and cantilevering aluminum windows draw air through and out of the space, like a natural (and free) air-conditioner.
  • High-performance Windows
  • Radiant Floor Heating
  • Direct-vent condensing boiler
  • Passive ventilation system

About the NYC Green Buildings Open House

The Green Buildings Open House is GreenhomeNYC’s semi-annual guided tour of green buildings all over New York City, taking place in the Spring and Fall of every year.

The event gives New Yorkers a chance to get inside Green buildings and hear about their inner workings from the owners, architects, and engineers who designed, built and operate them. Visitors will come away with new expectations of comfort, livability, energy and environmental benefits.

Since 2003, GreenHomeNYC has organized the NYC Green Buildings Open House as a part of Northeast Sustainable Energy Associaion’s (NESEA) Green Buildings Open House and the American Solar Energy Society’s (ASES) National Solar Tour.
