The 370 Jay Street project is three stories in one: the LEED Platinum renovation of a mid-century building with sustainability as a key goal; advancement of a new academic trajectory for a leading university; and a partnership between the University and the City. As part of New York City’s Applied Science Initiative, NYU and the NYCEDC partnered to upgrade and renovate 370 Jay Street into a flagship building intended to elevate applied sciences and creative arts and to be an integral component of the emerging Brooklyn Tech Triangle. The building is a model for progressive sustainability, energy efficiency, and practical implementable solutions. Sustainable design strategies include façade renovation with new high-efficiency windows, high-performance glazing, optimized sills and sun shades, daylight harvesting, a microturbine, and thermal storage. As one of four LEED v.2009 Platinum certified Core and Shell projects in New York City, the project proves that it is possible to bring an abandoned structure back to life as a high-performing, sustainable building that is also a vibrant urban hub for innovation.
