“The New York City Housing Authority—which with 178,000 apartments and more than 400,000 low-income residents is the city’s largest landlord—has committed to introduce solar panels on its roofs beginning in 2017.

By 2025, the agency plans to bring in vendors to provide 25 megawatts on its open rooftops and possibly on canopies above parking lots. Some 2.5 million square feet of photovoltaic panels would be deployed, roughly eight times the size of Washington Square Park.”

– Josh Barbanel for The Wall Street Journal

This commitment is the first of NYCHA’s sustainability agenda. KPF, planner for the Sandy Resiliency and Renewal Program and the NYCHA Red Hook Houses in New York, is working closely with NYCHA to deliver a community that will produce heat efficiently and reduce consumption of fossil fuel. KPF has also designed two new steam-power plants to be built at Brooklyn’s Red Hook houses.

With a focus on resiliency, the master plan project includes providing a set of achievable and innovative strategies for the renewal of the Red Hook Houses. The team’s scope includes an integrated, transformative design for improvement of the campus site, infrastructure and public amenities and the development of strategies for replacing and relocating critical MEP systems. Following the master plan, KPF will provide full services through post-construction
