Construction for this newly remodeled living space began in 2008 and was recently completed. Developer of the site was R & E Brooklyn, a green building consultant and design company. Before its conversion, this 1920s building had served over the years as a pharmacy, a Laundromat and a deli with residences above. Now, it has two townhouses in it's stead, 453 Pacific Street being the second. Green Depot was involved in the project providing ideas, tools and supplies during the development phase of the project. Green features of the home include roof top solar electric panels and a hybrid solar-thermal and gas-fired system that heat and cool the home, eco-friendly materials such as cement made from fly ash, counter-tops made from recycled glass, bamboo flooring finished with low-VOC water-based poly and kitchen cabinets made from sorghum stalks, a type of grass. In terms of certification, the wood used for flooring is FSC certified and appliances Energy Star rated. R& E Brooklyn is currently on track to receive a L.E.E.D Gold Certification.
