The Solaire, Manhattan’s premier green building, located in the heart of Battery Park City and offering waterfront residences available to own for the first time, is officially New York City’s top-selling new development of 2022.
Overlooking the Hudson River waterfront with direct access to two parks, The Solaire features LEED-certified residences originally designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli, with amenities and select residences reimagined by the renowned COOKFOX Architects, all with captivating views of the parks and waterfront.
Battery Park City is one of Manhattan’s most coveted neighborhoods, unique in its proximity to numerous green spaces and the Hudson River, as well as walkability to some of the city’s best restaurants, shopping and cultural touchstones. It is also rare in its concentration of environmentally friendly buildings, notably including The Solaire, which was the first LEED Gold high-rise residence in the United States.
The Solaire features several advanced green features that are unique to residential buildings in New York and that are of particular interest to many future residents at the building. The Solaire features a brick and cerulean blue facade of photovoltaic cells that generates electricity for the building and an on-site water-treatment center that allows the building to consume only half of the water of a similarly sized building in New York City, as well as a state-of-the-art air-conditioning system that removes harmful pollutants from the interior air, and rainwater irrigation that sustains the landscaped green roofs. The recent renovations at The Solaire continue the trajectory of its environmentally friendly history; they are currently pursuing WELL Building Certification.
A completely renewed amenity program offers a balanced lifestyle at The Solaire, with each space thoughtfully appointed for the comfort, health and well-being of the residents. Amenities at The Solaire, reimagined by COOKFOX, include a landscaped roof terrace with an outdoor kitchen, dining areas, sundeck and garden featuring stunning views over the Hudson River, a residents’ lounge with catering kitchen and dining area, children’s playroom, and media and game room.
In addition to Manhattan’s most picturesque running and biking paths right outside the front door, residents also have access to a light-filled fitness center and training studio with state-of-the-art, interactive training equipment. Residents are supported by a 24-hour concierge as well as a live-in resident manager. The Solaire also features on-site parking with EV charging stations (available at an additional cost), private storage, bicycle storage and cold storage.
“Battery Park City is a truly treasured Manhattan community and sought-after neighborhood, as buyers crave green space, walkability and access to the water,” said Aaron Goed, sales director at The Solaire, from Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. “We have seen unprecedented interest at The Solaire, resulting in over 100 contracts quickly signed after launching sales from buyers looking for an opportunity to live in this ideal setting.”
