Green Story - The Solaire


starts from within 

The design of The Solaire reflects Pelli’s and COOKFOX’s dedication to design that enhances the well-being of every resident. The building was engineered to consume less energy, reduce peak demand for electricity, require less water, and provide residents with healthier indoor air quality and more natural light. With its sustainable features and an energy-conserving design, The Solaire holds the distinction of being one of the first LEED Gold NC high-rise residences in the United States, and is presently pursuing WELL Core Silver Building Certification.

Raising the bar for green living




Oversized and floor-to-ceiling windows in The Solaire provide more natural light in each home. The High-performance windows seal out noises from the outside.


Over 3,500 square feet of blue photovoltaic cells on the building’s western façade were fabricated from recycled computer chips and generate a sizable portion of the building’s electricity. 


The Solaire is designed to adhere to the highest sustainability standards to maximize energy efficiency, and yield a 65% reduction in peak electric demand.
