A note from the Jury
This project was recognized for its beautiful, well-detailed design that incorporates both high performance elements for energy and water reduction with thoughtful interventions for resilience. The jury found the design to be almost Swiss in its execution and appreciated the move away from a fully glazed curtain wall. Storm protection includes an elevated ground floor, a co-gen system that ties into each apartment, and abundant native plantings coordinated with the adjacent park. It is especially impressive that this building was built on city-owned land, demonstrating what a strong public-private partnership can achieve.
