The quality of New York City water has long been of, well, consuming interest. Lately, however, trendsetting developers like Douglaston Development, the Durst Organization, Extell Development, Rockrose, Rose Associates and Silverstein Properties have taken matters into their own hands by specifying central water filtration systems for their new buildings here. Some builders are going even further by equipping kitchens with high-end filters to obviate the need for bottled water. The Helena, a 600-unit, LEED gold-certified Midtown residential property built by Durst and managed by Rose Associates, was the first local project to feature twice-filtered water. If this trend takes off, it will certainly have positive environmental implications.
