Steve Halpern at COMPASS: Sustainable Living Comes to Brooklyn. Sales Launch at Lexè, Crown Heights’ First Certified Passive House

Ten luxury residences with Italian design minimize carbon footprint and reimage what sustainable living looks like in Brooklyn

The award-winning Halpern Team led by Steve Halpern, a founding agent at Compass, announces that sales launch at Lexè (669 Saint Marks Ave), the premier earth-friendly new development in Crown Heights. The project is recognized as an NYSERDA Building Of Excellence Award Winner. Lexè's ten environmentally-conscious residences range from $1.3 million to $2 million. Most have coveted outdoor space and are being marketed exclusively by the Steve Halpern Team at Compass.

“At Lexè, residents can minimize their carbon footprint and live in sustainable chic luxury,” said Steve Halpern. “Each unit is uniquely designed by Lago and constructed to renew the spirit without blemishing the planet.”

Lago, the innovative Italian interior design firm, masterfully adorned the units with elegant finishes and one-of-a-kind pieces. Lago is known for its distinguished floating products – from the bedroom to the kitchen. They appear to levitate.

While passive homes are not new to the greater New York area, few are officially certified. The Lexè secured passive house certification, which dramatically minimizes energy consumption for heating and cooling by 90 percent.

The state-of-the-art building is designed to high sustainable standards while boosting residents' health, well-being, and comfort. Each unit features Italian craftsmanship, private storage, and high ceilings, all while minimizing carbon footprint and pollution and optimizing fresh air, quietness and elevating investment value.

And right in the center of Brooklyn is Crown Heights, a large and diverse neighborhood. With so much culture, it has developed into one of the best scenes in New York City for food, nightlife, shops, and cultural institutions.

The visionary Lexè project merges the talents of three highly-regarded real estate players.

The Halpern Team at Compass will exclusively manage sales and marketing. Steve is a founding agent at the tech-enabled firm that ascended from a high-growth start-up to Fortune 500 Company in ten years. While at Compass, Steve has represented one of the most significant residential rental transactions in the history of New York City and has received many accolades for his innovative out-of-the-box marketing, including nine video influencer awards by Tom Ferry.

Joining Steve on the Verdevelopment consortium is Italian developer Massimo Cocco and renowned local developer RYL Group. Massimo's company, Maskenada, prioritizes beautiful, sustainable developments and has developed passive houses in Italian cities, including Cortina, Vincenza, Treviso, and Montebelluna. RYL Group has built sustainable housing throughout New York City and adds local development experience. Lexè is the first project with the trio working in tandem.
