Jennifer Schwab & NY Times tour “The Visionaire”

Jennifer Schwab takes NY Times editor, Tom Zeller Jr., on a tour of “The Visionaire”, a luxury, green high-rise in Battery Park, NY. The building is an uber-swanky, über-green — 251-unit, 35-story luxury condominium complex in Lower Manhattan that opened for business last fall. The building features Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) panels; a blackwater recycling system; a vegetation-rich “green” rooftop; amongst a host of other green features. The building just received its LEED Platinum Certification.
