Hard as it may be to believe, we’ve raised $4 million of the $5 million we need to build No Rio’s new home!!!
But we still need another cool million…
We’re moving forward, working closely with New York City’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Department of Design and Construction to build a fantastic new building. DDC will manage construction — they’re already reviewing our architectural and engineering documents, a process that is far more rigorous than we could ever have imagined. Our construction documents should be complete before the year is out.
We could begin construction next summer, but we still need another cool million…
The new ABC No Rio will be spectacular. We’ll have twice as much space for exhibitions, music, performances and other public events. We’re creating spaces especially designed for our projects and programs. The building will be properly sound-proofed and wheelchair accessible.
Our new building will meet the rigorous Passive House energy efficiency standard through a high-performance building envelope with super-insulated walls and a cutting-edge heat-recovery ventilation system. We’ll be significantly more efficient than the state energy code requires. With a green roof, efficient lighting fixtures and controls, triple-paned, low “e-glazed” windows, and low-flow plumbing fixtures the new building will meet the criteria for LEED Silver.
Sustainable design is not just for mind numbing offices and luxury condos. Small grassroots spaces can be the most sustainable.
But… we still need another cool million to make that happen!
