WNYC is talking about it. Inhabitat is taking photos. Williamsburg’s aspiring chillwave stars have to be jealous of Passive House 1.
Steelworks Lofts, an adaptive reuse project in Williamsburg, is out of limbo. It has new developers, a new identity as a rental building… but what about its former sustainability?
