Some buyers seek an environment that is the healthiest from every perspective. A prominent proponent of good health is the former owner, Leonardo DiCaprio, an environmental activist and famous actor, who selects eco-friendly homes designed to promote well-being. Along with Bill Gates and Jeff Vinik, he is even in the board of DELOS, a not-for-profit dedicated to the features that promote wellness in real estate that are exemplified in 66 East 11th Street.
66 East 11 Street, The Green Delos Building, is an Uber eco-friendly environment that has been called "the healthiest building in New York City".
This boutique condominium conversion features only six residences among eight stories housed in an 1897 terra-cotta building. Designed and constructed by Loffredo Brooks Architect, it is the first "WELL Certified" building in the world.
