But even we were taken by surprise by the many big Passive House buildings underway in New York City, listed in the City Realty blog post: The Ultimate Map of NYC’s Passive House Movement, Includes 25 Energy-Efficient Overachievers now in the Works. It was almost shocking to see so many buildings in one place. And we hadn’t heard of half of them – and even more encouraging, we know of at least 10 more big projects not on their list. Check it out!
