Matthew Van Dusen writes that "...as much as the building impresses with its virtue, its appearance is even more striking":
"Via Verde promises urban renewal, with green rooftops for gardens and solar panels that meet 5 percent of the building's electricity load. "This is at the leading edge of social housing in New York and America," said Robert Garneau of Grimshaw Architects, which co-designed the building with Dattner Architects."
