Alloy Development Seeks Local Energy Supplier for NYC’s First Electric Residential Tower 

Brooklyn-based Alloy Development plans to power the city’s first electric residential tower with 100% renewable energy. Alloy recently issued RFP seeking to partner with a community solar developer to enroll 100 Flatbush, the mixed-use tower now rising in Downtown Brooklyn, in community solar projects that will secure a  renewable energy supply for the building.  

The 44-story project is part of the first phase of the Alloy Block, a mixed-use development that will provide residential, office, cultural and retail space, as well as the city’s first two public schools designed to meet Passive House compliance. Construction of 100 Flatbush, which Alloy also designed, is expected to be complete in 2024.   

The issuance of the RFP comes just weeks after the New York City Department of Buildings released rules around compliance with Local Law 97, confirming that developers can comply with the law through off-site solar programs.
