Via Verde – The Green Way has been honored with two awards: the AIANY’s Andrew J. Thomas Award and the SMPS-NY’s 2012 Industry Award. The SMPS juried competition recognizes projects making a positive impact on New York’s built environment and honors the design, development, and the client team creating projects.
The Andrew J. Thomas Award recognizes a pioneer in housing. Andrew Thomas originated the “Garden Apartment” typology and designed a number of forward-looking housing developments, including Mott Houses, Bayonne Houses, and Metropolitan Garden Apartments. Via Verde, a 300,000sf affordable and highly sustainable residential development, opens for occupancy this spring.
