211 West 29th Street, NYC, built to Passive House standards

Manhattans’s second-largest building built to Passive House standards, 211 West 29th Street, NYC, will feature eFlow-Constant Airflow Regulators! 

This building now rises 24 stories and will house 55 rental units. Once completed, 211 West 29th Street will be a mixed-use, mixed-income (affordable and market-rate) rental building. 

The building is being built to Passive House standards under the supervision of  Steven Winter Associates Energy Consultant and will offer apartment layouts ranging from studios to three-bedroom units and will have passive house features such as lower energy consumption for the entire building. 

Passive house is a rigorous standard for energy efficiency in a building which results in ultra-low-energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling.

According to the official website of New York Passive House Inc., this type of construction “delivers up to approximately a 90% reduction in heating and cooling demand and up to a 75% reduction in overall primary energy demand” compared to most existing buildings. 

eFlow USA is proud to be part of this innovative project!
