Mayor Bloomberg opened a $25 million building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s industrial park that is the city’s first with mounted wind turbines.
The Perry Avenue property is the first multistory structure in the nation to be classified as a “green industrial facility” by the US Green Building Council, a Washington-based organization that rates properties for their effect on the environment, according to a statement from Bloomberg’s office.
The mayor, who is making an effort to create “green” jobs, also unveiled plans for a 60,000-square-foot building at the industrial park that will make environmentally friendly products.
The investments at the yard will create more than 1,700 permanent jobs, 40 percent in so-called green manufacturing, as well as 800 construction jobs, Bloomberg said.
