The Aquarius Tower will have wind turbines and a solar roof cleverly incorporated into its design. It will become one of the few buildings in the U.S. to incorporate such energy generating features. The tower is a proposed 38-story, 240,000-square-foot condominium complex that will be located across from the Georgia Aquarium, in Atlanta. It will also feature a robotic parking system similar to automated systems found in Asia. The tower designers say this will reduce pollution generated by driving in and out of a conventional parking garage.
Aquarius will also include sustainable features throughout the project and will utilize recycled building materials and thermally efficient products. However, the apartment interiors don’t seem particularly green in their construction.
I couldn’t find any data on how much energy will be produced by the tower.
Construction is slated to begin this summer and be completed by fall 2009. The tower was designed by PFVS Architects.
