The Solaire is located at 20 River Terrace in Battery Park City, one of the most affluent neighborhoods in New York City with a view that spans from Jersey City in the west to a glimpse of the Empire State Building, the tallest building in NYC since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, standing above the rest of its surroundings. The Solaire was the first green residential-use building in New York City. Completed in 2003, it is described as an environmentally-progressive residential tower. The building has been rated U.S. Green Building Council LEED-NC, v2 – Level: Gold. The LEED ratings were established by the Green Building Council to evaluate a building's efforts to use renewable materials, conserve energy and water consumption and enhance indoor air quality. The energy conserving building design is 35% more energy-efficient than code requires, resulting in a 67% lower electricity demand during peak hours, resulting in (among other benefits):
- Lower electric bills for residents
- Photovoltaic panels convert sunlight to electricity
- Computerized building management system and environmentally responsible operating and maintenance practices
