In Philadelphia, 2000 Delancey Place has passed it's second LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) inspection, and looks to become the first Green Historic Residential Renovation in the area if not the country to receive LEED certification. In order to obtain it's LEED certification at either the Silver or Gold level, the developers, A. Charles Peruto, Jr. and his son, A. Charles Peruto, III, have created a focus on energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and exterior green space in the four unit project. Living roofs flank a large roof deck connected to the Penthouse. A lawn complete with landscaping, sits atop a series of new garages behind the building, creating the effect of a rear yard to be used by the units. The developers are also reusing many of the buildings original features to gain LEED points, while maintaining the original character of the building, originally erected in 1860. The building's exterior has been fully restored, by all mandated practices of the Philadelphia Historic Commission, to its original appearance from 1860. All units are complete with gorgeous marble fireplaces, which are original to the building. The four units, each with two bedrooms and either two or two and half baths, feature all the modern amenities that one would expect, with the charm associated with a building originally completed in 1860. The developers are using only the finest finishing materials and appliances, all of which are available upon request, and can be chosen by the purchaser prior to completion.
