22 Tarrytown Road, located in the Town of Greenburgh, NY consists of a three-story, 28-unit workforce family development including a cellar, community room, laundry facility, green roof and parking. The proposed massing of the building is articulated in a series of vertical volumes and a combination of rainscreen façade materials to break the horizontality of the 3-story design.
The design maximizes the amount of daylight provided to the apartments with generous fenestrations and glazing. The east and west exposures are controlled by sun shade elements, such as balconies, wood shutters and awnings. The building is generously landscaped with native trees and plants creating natural buffers along all the property lines and providing shade control to the building and parking areas.
22 Tarrytown Road includes a 6,000 square foot green roof which will reduce the amount of peak storm water runoff into the sewer system and improve the quality of water that flows into rivers and streams. The green roof also offers a habitat for fauna and flora within an urban area, improve the microclimate, and reduce dust and smog levels.
With its sustainable, high-performance features and smart building technology 22 Tarrytown Road applied for the NYSERDA Multi-Family Performance Program green affordable housing component which includes compliance with NYSERDA Energy Star criteria, and is compliant with Enterprise Green Communities criteria. It was recently certified at the LEED for Homes Silver level.
