Green Condos nearing the finish line in Brighton Beach. Prices will start at $325,000 for a studio and go up to $850,000 for a two-bedroom with two baths. The building will sell energy back to the grid, and residents should have very low or no utility bills, as we wrote in November. There will also be composting toilets and a hot tub, said a story today in The New York Daily News.
Front and center is Bright ’n Green, Scarano’s slogan-named apartment building at 67 Brighton 1st Lane that he says — in his inimitable brash style — will be nothing short of revolutionary. “It’s wonderful!” gushed Pat Singer, the founder of the Brighton Beach Neighborhood Association. In fact, the building is meant to be “net positive” — meaning that it will sell energy back to the grid.
“BnG is unique because it’s a more typical species of urban building—a mid-rise multi-unit residence that also has a ground floor commercial space. That makes it a replicable example for future development in urban neighborhoods, which are strong markets for mixed-use real estate.”
