Project Description

Beach Green Dunes I and II is a sustainable and resilient housing development in Far Rockaway, Queens comprised of 228 affordable units within two buildings, each designed to Passive House standards. Located a block from the Atlantic Ocean, the development distinguishes itself through color and ground floor fenestration and includes at grade and raised green spaces with interior amenities for residents such as recreation and fitness spaces and laundry facilities.

Phase II, an eight story, 120-unit building, is estimated for completion in Fall 2019. The complex provides much needed affordable housing to the Edgemere area. Advanced sustainable components at Beach Green Dunes includes a progressive building envelope and HVAC systems to provide unprecedented levels of comfort and air quality. The innovations of the core structure are augmented by a series of environmental design considerations such as a bio-swale garden to treat and retain storm water, solar photovoltaics on the roof and a geothermal heating/cooling system underground.
