According to Garrison Architects, The Seventy-Six is the first “triple net-zero (energy, water and waste) housing development in the United States.”1 But the firm’s new project in Albany, New York is a lot more than that:

“The development incorporates biophilic design techniques that provide opportunities for residents to grow their own food with a communal greenhouse, urban farming center, wetlands, and an irrigated planter in every housing unit. With hands-on learning opportunities, including a STEM training center, this complex hopes to educate and inspire people to reimagine urban living in a way that will address contemporary issues of climate change and housing equity.”
