Harlem in Manhattan is getting its first passive rental building, meaning it’s extremely energy-efficient. Residents save on energy costs, but rent’s not cheap.
Manhattan now has its first rental apartment building that meets passive standards, meaning it requires little energy to achieve comfortable temperatures year-round.
The luxury building, dubbed Perch Harlem, consumes 80% less energy than one of similar size, said Justin Palmer, CEO of Synapse Development Group. That means residents will save money on air-conditioning and heating costs.
But that doesn’t mean it’s cheap to live there. Monthly rents range from $2,500 to $5,500 for one-and-two-bedroom apartments respectively.
Take a look inside Perch Harlem, which opened in October.
Synapse built the $8.5 million complex at 542 West 153th Street in Harlem, a Manhattan neighborhood that has quickly gentrified in recent years. The building’s facade features an abstract window design.
The development has 34 units.
