Green living in Bed-Stuy
Leasing is now underway at Acacia, the first rental building In Bed-Stuy striving for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification and home to the neighborhood’s first on-site co-generation plant.
With 105 luxury rental residences, the nine-story development will offer high-efficiency technology that will reduce Acacia’s carbon footprint, while helping residents lower their energy consumption and costs.
Offering a mix of one- to three-bedroom homes ranging in size from 664 to 1,177 s/f, many of the units feature private balconies and terraces. Pricing begins at $1,887 per month. MNShas been tapped as the exclusive leasing and marketing firm for the development.
“In addition to offering luxury rentals, Acacia is bringing a new type of environmentally-friendly living to Bed-Stuy,” said Andrew Barrocas, CEO of MNS. “We expect the building’s green design to attract the attention of prospective renters who are looking for a home that is on the cutting edge of eco-living and located in an ever-changing neighborhood.”
Green features at Acacia include fresh filtered air in corridors, programmable thermostats in individual rooms, EnergyStar appliances, water-conserving fixtures, floor-to-ceiling Low-E windows and energy-efficient lighting. Acacia was also constructed using recycled and regional matters.
The building, at 1560 Fulton Street, has a part-time doorman, furnished outdoor terrace with lounge and dining areas, landscaped courtyard and a children’s play room. On-site parking and bicycle storage is also available for rent.
