The Solaire by COOKFOX Architects

The Solaire

The Solaire, Manhattan’s premier green building located in the heart of Battery Park City, has officially launched sales, offering waterfront residences available to own for the first time. Overlooking the Hudson River waterfront with direct access to two parks, The Solaire features LEED-certified residences originally designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli, with amenities and select residences reimagined by the renowned COOKFOX Architects, all with captivating views of the parks
and waterfront.

Battery Park City is one of Manhattan’s most coveted neighborhoods, unique in its proximity to numerous green spaces and the Hudson River, as well as walkability to some of the city’s best restaurants, shopping, and cultural touchstones. It is also rare in its concentration of environmentallyfriendly buildings, notably including The Solaire, which was the first LEED Gold high-rise residence in the United States when it originally came to market as one of downtown Manhattan’s most progressively-designed luxury buildings.

Now for the first time, The Solaire is available to own, with two distinct residence styles: The Original Solaire Collection and the beautifully redesigned COOKFOX Collection. All residences feature oversized noise-reducing Low-E casement windows, and high performance, four-pipe, multi-zone, year-round heating and cooling system with Wi-Fi enabled thermostats. All homes feature washer/dryers, and select residences feature private terraces.

Residences in the COOKFOX Collection feature 5” white oak plank flooring, and kitchens with Italian matte white-lacquered cabinetry and Adamantium Quartzite slab countertop and backsplash and a top-of-the-line appliance package. Primary bathrooms feature honed Montpellier Limestone mosaic floors and a sophisticated combination of Bianco Dolomite Marble and Montpellier Limestone wall finish, with a millwork vanity of limed walnut finish.

The Solaire features several advanced green features which are unique to residential buildings in New York, including its brick and cerulean blue facade of photovoltaic cells, which generates electricity for the building. Built-in infrastructure includes an on-site water treatment center that allows the building to consume only half of the water as a similarly sized building in New York City.

A state-of-the-art air conditioning system includes MERV14 filtration removing harmful pollutants from the interior air, and rainwater irrigation sustains the landscaped green roofs which cool the building during the summer and warm it during the winter. The recent renovations at The Solaire continue the trajectory of its environmentally-friendly history; currently pursuing WELL Core Silver Building Certification.

Amenities at The Solaire, reimagined by COOKFOX, include a landscaped roof terrace with an outdoor kitchen, dining areas, sundeck and garden featuring stunning views over the Hudson River, a
residents’ lounge with catering kitchen and dining area, children’s playroom, and media and game room.

In addition to Manhattan’s most picturesque running and biking paths right outside the front door, residents also have access to a light-filled fitness center and training studio with state-of-the-art, interactive training equipment. The lobby will be attended by a 24-hour concierge, and residents will be supported by a live-in resident manager. The Solaire also features on-site parking with EV charging stations, (available at an additional cost,) private storage, bicycle storage, and cold storage.
