Located at the intersection of the Carroll Gardens and Gowanus neighborhoods in Brownstone Brooklyn, Third & Bond is a modern adaptation of the traditional townhouse featuring 44 luxury residential condominiums. Designed by Rogers Marvel Architects, Third & Bond will offer high quality and beautiful finishes suitable for families and young professionals who seek “green” living in a friendly and convenient neighborhood.
Third & Bond is expected to be LEED-Gold and ENERGY STAR labeled to certify that it has met stringent requirements for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. Currently it is on target to be one of the first residential projects in Brooklyn to receive both green building accolades.
Third & Bond is featured weekly on the real estate blog, Brownstoner
. Each week, postings describe a different part of the development process from acquisition to design to selection of finishes to offering plans and more.

The Edge is one of the largest residential projects in New York City to implement sustainable design and green construction.
The Edge is seeking certification under the USGBC’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) New Construction (NC) program. The LEED certification process provides an excellent framework to help achieve a building’s green goals. Equally important is that future owners will achieve significant financial benefits through energy cost savings while occupying a more enjoyable, healthier living space which is also helping to protect the environment.
The Delta is the 1st building in NYC to be 100% powered by solar and utilizes many renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies that significantly decrease it’s energy use by more then 75% compared with the average building.
Voltaic Solaire’s goal with the project: “If we can develop a building that powers itself, on an unusual trianglular lot in one of the most code-heavy cities in the world, our hope is to serve as a model, and inspire other developers around the world to do the same.”
