It will be built on the East River in Stuyvesant Cove Park. It's Solar 2, a building that will exhibit building techniques that have minimal impact on the environment. The building will be open to the public and will include an Eco-Apartment, laid out to resemble a standard NYC dwelling and outfitted with the most efficient appliances and fixtures and other “green” attributes.

The building will be an important educational tool, as it will allow visitors to experience first-hand geothermal wells, building-integrated photovoltaic panels, solar hot water, daylighting strategies, a Living Machine, recycled building materials, rainwater collection and more.
