Case Study: 210 Pacific

Located in Brooklyn’s fashionable Boerum Hill neighborhood, 210 Pacific Street–designed and developed by NAVA Companies–features fullfloor through and half floor apartments that offer inspired living by way of sustainable design.

The building employs Passive House technology and Solar Hot Water equipment to greatly reduce the energy requirements allowing it to meet the 2050 NYC energy goals for housing – decades ahead of schedule. A truly inspiring building featuring sustainable design.

210 Pacific Street incorporates the Passive House approach to sustainability where extensive insulation, individual energy recovery units and the Thermo Alu75 from Zola Windows all contribute to an extremely efficient living environment. The advanced solar hot water system ensures optimum energy independence while also creating a positive environmental impact.

The Thermo Alu75 delivers tremendous value in a triple pane, thermally broken aluminum system. With R-11 glass standard and R-15 quad glass optional, Thermo Alu75 can be offered in extremely large sizes. It is available as a Tilt & Turn window as well as Lift & Slide, french and entry doors. The frame incorporates a three-chamber thermal break, creating a barrier in between the inside and outside window frames that will reduce thermal transmission and enhance insulating ability. The end result is superior interior comfort and energy savings. Combined with its multiple lock systems and triple air seals, the window exceeds Energy Star requirements by over 50%.

"We were very happy with the Zola windows we chose for our condo project at 210 Pacific St in Brooklyn. They are excellent quality and Zola’s staff have been great to work with throughout the entire process.  We are currently using them again for another project in Manhattan,” says Stewart Osborne, a partner in NAVA Companies.

This project won the 2017 North American Copper in Architecture Award.

NAVA is a forward-thinking architecture and real estate development company, combining imaginative design with astute investing and development management. Our mission is to create innovative designs that are particular to their local conditions to enhance the value of the finished project.
