10964 Palisades Newsletter: Rethinking Architectural Design
Via the 10964 Palisades Newsletter:
Designed by COOKFOX, the 270,000 square foot, sixteen story office tower connecting Hudson Street to Greenwich Street, will be one of the most efficient commercial buildings in New York City, a benchmark for sustainable and responsible development, meeting New York State’s 2050 carbon neutral targets with 46% overall carbon reduction and 29% reduction in electrical consumption.
COOKFOX designed the structure to eliminate the use of fossil fuels for heating and cooling, dramatically reducing energy and carbon production. A slab with a radiant activated system reduces 50% of carbon emissions using a thermal active superstructure for the first time in a New York office building. An all-electric heat pump-based Direct Outdoor Air maximizing fresh air was integral to the design strategy. This all-electric concept combines caissons with geothermal capacity, a hydronic dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) that utilizes the thermal mass of the structure to condition the space and rooftop air source heat pumps.
