Is it possible to modify a house into a green home, by hiring a contractor to remodel it in a sustainable fashion? Sure!

Green Home Condos in New York City

by jim

New York New Green Condos For Sale

New York City is known for clinging to progressive ideals as much as it is known for its hustle and bustle. While said ideals are quite conducive with a green lifestyle, the aforementioned bustle and its resulting pollution is not. Despite this, there are still great housing options available to those looking for a green retreat in New York City.

One luxury residence that is making a name for itself is Kalahari, located in Harlem. Yes, Harlem! Today’s Harlem residents are an incredibly diverse bunch, and the community is becoming known as a great place to invest in classic New York brownstones and high rise apartments for a far better price tag than in other boroughs. Taking that into consideration, the team that put the plans for these 250 environmentally responsible units created what they call an “architectural tribute” to the history and character of the Harlem community. Sub-Saharan Africa was the inspiration for the design, both interior and exterior, of these green-friendly New York City apartments.

Better still, those who are long-time Harlem community residents are offered an even more affordable rate than the high $600,000’s cost for a Kalahari home. Another half of the units are sold at market rate. The builders find that this is a more “fair and equitable” method of doing business with green-minded consumers.

What else is green about Kalahari? Sustainable bamboo strip floors, large windows to encourage natural light instead of electric, and Energy Star appliances – to name a few features. Built to the U.S .Green Building Council's LEED Silver Standards, Kalahari is in a new category of “hybrid homes” designed with the goal of limiting impact on the environment – while still providing luxurious and modern resources, of course.

But what would a green home be without lush vegetation? Landscaped courtyards are one of Kalahari’s proudest features, and outdoor recreation options are within the amenities. In keeping with its socially-conscious theme, the building is home to a reputable Harlem afterschool program – making it a great option for families looking to relocate.

To check out Kalahari, stop in and request a tour at 40 West 116th St., Harlem, NY 10026; or, call (212) 348-0090 for more information.

High Rise Living: Is it a Thing of the Past?

by jim

Chic, high rise living was once a standard-bearer for cosmopolitan populations in large cities. From Los Angeles to Miami to New York City and Toronto, everyone who was anyone chose a high rise over other living options.

Today, urban living is experiencing something of a comeback; however, it seems that townhomes and condos have become the preferred attached product of many single residents, couples, and small families. Home builders are no doubt capitalizing on this; while downtown, live-work spaces are indeed gaining popularity in a number of regions, they are also quite successfully edging out their predecessor: the big city high rise. 

If you hold on to a dream of high rise living, don’t fear: It is still possible! Need some guidance/inspiration? Some of the most impressive examples currently available in high rise homes are described here:

Little Tokyo Lofts, Los Angeles: Ever drive through LA and wistfully imagine that a historic structure would convert to an apartment building – so you could move in? Hammer Ventures had the foresight to do that very thing, opting to utilize the old Westinghouse building for Little Tokyo Lofts. The 161 living spaces range from 653 to 1,800 sq. ft., and the two-story spaces boast 30 ft. ceilings. Attractively priced, these lofts were designed with the artistic personality in mind. For more information, call (213) 626-6400.

111 Central Park North, New York City: Sure, you want to live in New York City…but the thought of looking out your window and seeing grass and trees (rather than cars and blinding lights) is appealing too. For that reason, Athena Homes erected 111 Central Park North, a gorgeous skyscraper that houses luxurious living spaces averaging at 1,900 sq. ft. If you’re looking for a quintessential New York lifestyle and you can afford a seven figure price tag (the view alone is worth every penny!), you may want to ask what 111 Central Park North has available. To learn more, call (212) 381-2671.    

Festival Tower, Toronto: A city that has grown leaps and bounds, Toronto is becoming a popular destination for those looking to plant their roots up north. For career-minded individuals those who make this move, there are few options more appealing than Festival Tower. Not only is the sight of the building spectacular, but the amenities – including a pool house, cinema, fitness center, lounge, terrace, and private club spanning two floors – make this an amazing place to call home. If interested, inquire at (416) 203-2020.

Is high rise living a thing of the past? It doesn’t look like it! The only way to find out if it’s for you is to take the plunge and tour one of their spaces.
