Conceived as an extension of the garden's topog- raphy, the flowing glass building is a model for the integration of built structure and landscape. The Visitor Center houses a new garden store, visible from within the garden and with new street-side connections to Washington Ave., an orientation room for tours and classes, a visitor- information desk, a new event space, a refreshment bar and restrooms. One of the many features of this new facility is the 10,000 s/f living roof which will transform throughout the year with seasonal plantings. In addition to the living roof, the Visitor Center incorporates numerous envi- ronmentally sustainable features that are aimed toward earning LEED Gold certification. A geoexchange system consisting of 28 thermal wells heats and cools the interior spaces, reduc- ing the structure's overall energy consumption. Radiant floor heat- ing provides warmth efficiently to the building's occupants. Much of the structure and landscaping uses concrete and steel containing post- consumer and postindustrial recycled building materials. Interior wood paneling is milled from gingko trees harvested from the building site. The project is EW Howell's first venture into Building Information Modeling (BIM). •for full story visit nyrej.com• MANHATTAN, NY ABS Partners Real Estate, LLC has advised on the $87 million sale of 525 Broadway, have been successfully developing together for years."
