Chamber Tours Award-Winning Green Buildings

Three winners in this year’s Building Brooklyn Awards were toured this week by members of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce’s Real Estate and Development (RED) Committee. The tour focused on how each project achieved LEED certification, according to Lori Raphael, RED director.
Traveling in a Con Edison-sponsored bus, the group started at Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO, went on to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum and ended up at the Brooklyn Navy Yard — first at the Perry Building to view its rooftop solar panels (pictured here), and then to see the future green manufacturing site.
