THE PARASOL PROJECT
1921 ATLANTIC AVENUE, BROOKLYN
The building is being designed to achieve Passive House standard of performance. In addition to reducing electric and fuel demand, the building will also create its own supply by incorporating on-site microturbine co-generation plant along with solar panels. Along with energy savings, the design also calls for water conservation via ultra low fixtures, waste management, recycling and composting.
Morozov Engineering was invited to participate in a completion to win the right to develop a city-owned parcel of land in Brooklyn. The project, named The ParaSol, will consist of 150 residential units. 105 apartments will be available for residents earning up to 60% of median income and 45 units will be allocated for the formerly homeless. In addition to residential units, the building will also have a 6,000 SF communal facility, retail and parking spaces as well as roof garden on the roof.
