Going Green in Hoboken

I am sure you have heard by now gardenloft-ed034that Hoboken is the home of a new
green building. The Garden Street Lofts located at 1401 Garden St. was once was a coconut processing and storage warehouse is now transformed into Hoboken’s hippest, smartest, and only green residence.

The Garden Street Lofts is committed to a belief in building green by demonstrating its decision to seek LEED (Leadership
in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the U.S.Green Building Council,the standard bearer for ecologically-conscious building practices in America.

Green buildings are sited, designed, constructed, and operated to enhance the well being of their occupants and support a healthy community and natural environment. In practical terms, green building is a whole-systems-approach to building that includes:

· Designing for livable communities

· Using sun and site to the building’s advantage for natural heating, cooling, and light

· Building quality, durable structures

· Reducing and recycling construction and demolition waste

· Insulating well and ventilating appropriately

· Incorporating durable, salvaged, recycled, and harvested materials

· Using healthy products and building practices

· Using energy-efficient and water-saving appliances, fixtures and technology

gardenloft-ed046When implemented holistically, these strategies serve to preserve our
environment for future generations by conserving natural resources and
protecting air and water quality. They provide benefits for us today by
increasing comfort and well-being and helping to maintain healthy air quality.

Finally, green building strategies are good for everyone’s pocketbook by
reducing maintenance and replacement requirements, reducing utility bills and lowering the cost of home ownership, and increasing property and resale values.
