Located at the southwestern tip of lower Manhattan, most New Yorkers rarely venture out into Battery Park City but for those fortunate enough to do so, they would probably attest to all the hidden loveliness that the neighborhood has to offer. Battery Park City is home one of the city's largest concentration of LEED certified or “green” residential buildings. As the city's first and only Platinum LEED certified building, the Visionaire at 70 Little West Street is perhaps the “greenest” of them all.
Apartments for sale at 70 Little West Street are the perfect blend of environmentally sound designs and functional asthetics. Floor-to-ceiling windows are pre-wired for motorized solar shades and the digitally programmable ambiance control system provides year round comforts that are quieter and more energy efficient. Sustainably harvested hardwood flooring and EnergyStar Asko washer and dryer are just some of the other features in the Visionaire's effort to reduce its carbon footprints for both the building and its inhabitants.
Amenities at the Visionaire are located centrally for convenient access to its residents. The seventh floor features a rare 12-foot long salt-water live reef aquarium filled with tropical fish and aquatic plants; sky-lit indoor swimming pool with overlooking state-of-the-art fitness center; and separate steam rooms and glass-walled spa/sauna with year-round resort-class services. The landscaped rooftop garden on the twelfth floor comes readily equipped with Wolf grills, a wet bar and recreational lawn area overlooking the Hudson River and Western New York.
The spacious, glass-enclosed lobby at 70 Little West Street is more like a gallery than a lobby, with paintings by Caio Fonseca and James Nares and a commissioned Classico travertine sculpture of La Sirena by Renzo Maggi. A valet parking garage with electric vehicle charging station, multi-level children's playroom and 24-hour concierge service are just some of the many other amenities that the Visionaire has to offer on top of being an advocate for a healthy, environmentally-friendly and active social and recreational lifestyle. The Visionaire at 70 Little West Street may be the “greenest” condominium building in New York City but perhaps it's the competition that should be green with envy.
