Not green? What about the 1/2 acre of solar and the 1/2 acre of vegetated green roof, plus minimizing the hardscape through under-building parking and opening the waterfront with a vegetated esplanade park? I'm conflicted about this development because I love the quirky, scrappy, somewhat desolate solitude of the Red Hook waterfront, but this is actually the greenest big box in the region (country?) by far and the greenest thing to rise on the NYC waterfront excepting the magnificent Solaire in Manhattan and a far cry greener than the paving and contaminants slumping into the water on this site pre-IKEA.
