Standard Upgrades Energy Efficiency at NYC Property

Standard Communities said it is completing extensive energy efficiency upgrades at Polyclinic Apartments, a 151-unit, 100 percent affordable community at 341 West 50th Street in Manhattan. The substantial energy efficiency improvements to the building’s systems, common areas and units will bring Polyclinic Apartments into compliance, well ahead of deadlines, with New York City Local Law 97 and other environmental regulations designed to cut greenhouse gas emissions. 

“Buildings account for approximately two-thirds of greenhouse gas emissions in New York City, and Standard is proud to do our part in helping New York City become carbon neutral by 2050. Our substantial energy efficiency improvements at Polyclinic Apartments are projected to reduce our carbon output more than 20 percent and save our residents over $6,000 a year collectively in utility bills,” said Co-founder and Principal of Standard Communities Scott Alter.
