Developer LCOR's Coney Island Project Launches Leasing At 1515 Surf Avenue, Brooklyn NY
This project is not just any project! LCOR, a prominent investment and real estate development company has included the largest geothermal HVAC system built to date in New York City in 1515 Surf Avenue.
This 2 building residential waterfront complex has 463 units. The buildings will be both heated and cooled by this incredible geothermal system. The system is projected to reduce carbon emissions by more than 60% compared to other residential buildings with conventional heating and cooling systems which means lower energy bills for its residents.
1515 Surf Avenue will be certified as a “healthy building” by Fitwell a rating system. The healthy building concept encompasses the physical, psychological, and social health of people who live in them, with the focus on adequate ventilation, indoor air quality and natural lighting.
How geothermal systems work is steam is taken from deep underground and used to power generators that produce electricity. Steam is sent into the cooling towers and then goes back underground as water. Excess steam is used for heating.
Engineering News Record, a trade publication reports that geothermal was not originally in the plans for this project. According to Anthony Tortora, Senior Vice President of LCOR “that site was so large and so close to the ocean presented itself as a unique candidate for geothermal”.
The 2 towers, 26 and 16 stories tall, total 470,000 square feet and has a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom units and Penthouses. There are 324 units at market rate rental prices and 139 designated affordable. Lottery dates on the affordable units runs from January 12 thru March 20th.
1515 Surf Avenue was designed by Studio V Architecture. The complex also has 10,600 square feet of ground floor retail, 30,000 square feet of outdoor amenity space, including a heated pool with views of the ocean and the Manhattan skyline, a 20,000 square foot landscaped private garden, a fitness center, indoor basketball and handball courts, a children's playroom, beach lockers, a pet spa, a game room with a pool table and vintage arcade games, a variety of lounges, off street parking and more according to LCOR.
Anthony Tortora said “With it's geothermal system, best in class design and extensive amenities, 1515 Surf Avenue differentiates itself from other residential communities in New York City and represents the future of sustainable living”.
