2018 VISION AWARD FOR ENERGY - MACK REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT, CYRENE
In building Cyrene, a 169-unit apartment building on the Waterfront, Mack Real Estate Development reached out to its neighbor Enwave to meet its heating and cooling needs. Cyrene and Enwave are connected through an underground network of pipes that constantly exchange energy directly with the building’s systems, achieving energy efficiencies above 90 percent. The results are laudable - a 57% reduction in energy use that meets the 2030 goal, lower carbon emissions, and hundreds in savings per unit compared to gas. Without the typical cooling tower and HVAC equipment, Cyrene residents enjoy an expansive rooftop terrace, and more space is available to rent.
