The New York City council has passed a suite of measures to reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs) released from buildings in the city, including a requirement for green roofs and/or solar panels on newly constructed buildings.
Mira, a twisting multifamily high-rise in San Francisco, California, designed by architecture firm Studio Gang has topped off. The 122-m (400-ft) tower will offer a range of luxury condominium residences, and amenity and retail spaces with occupancy slated for later this year.
Rooftop amenity spaces have become common selling points of luxurious multifamily, office, and hotel buildings in competitive real estate markets. These inviting spaces are frequently included in new construction, but are also gaining popularity during retrofits of existing roof spaces.
Studio Gang has released renderings for its Center in Paris project that will create a new hub for scholarship and cultural exchange in the city. The project comprises an academic center for the University of Chicago and a mixed-use residential building.
