PHA is more than thrilled to be centrally involved as the Passive House Certifier on this 26 story student dorm on Roosevelt Island, Manhattan. In this video prepared by our friends at 475, listen to Mayor De Blasio and other dignitaries, including the developer behind the project, talk about Passive House and the significant energy savings it will bring to the Cornell Campus. NYC is about to claim the number 1 spot for tall Passive House buildings and this is likely to be the first of many such projects in a city that has set its sights on reducing carbon emissions by 80% by 2050!
