Green Buildings in Manhattan

In ways big and small, New York City ranks among the greenest big cities in the world, and an ongoing boom in green Manhattan real estate should ensure that the NYC condominium marketplace remains a surprisingly green scene in years ahead. Once limited to a relatively small percentage of the Manhattan condo marketplace, green condos can now be found in just about every Manhattan neighborhood, from the large-scale, ultra-green condominiums of Battery Park City to the ultra-luxurious High Line-hugging green condos of Chelsea to a host of new green condo listings on the Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Midtown West and elsewhere. The benefits of a green apartment are easy to see -- from improved air quality to lower energy bills, from innovative amenities to old-fashioned efficiency. And thanks to the great (and growing) selection of green condo listings in Manhattan, it’s easier than ever to find the green condominium that’s right for you.
