New Mill is a 160,000 sq. ft. mixed-use student living accommodation, located in the heart of Dublin’s historical Liberties. It features 400 bedrooms across 61 cluster flats in a 4-7 storey courtyard block, as well as shops, a cafe and commercial space for local businesses.

The primary goal for the $37 million New Mill development was to create a functional, sustainable, beautifully designed residence for students.

Praised for creating a new prototype of what student accommodation should look like.  

The standards and design outlined at New Mill paved the way for many new developments around Dublin City.

Windows Chosen for Thermal & Acoustic Performance

Our TB50 curtain wall system, ST80 high-performance windows with integrated louver panels and out ST80 rebated doors. Our ST80 window system was specifically chosen to meet the thermal and acoustic requirements outlined in the design stage of this project.

“New Mill is an extremely energy efficient building, and this is what we should come to expect from all new builds going forward. There are very exacting specifications in a project like this. From the point of view of the end users, acoustics were a major part of the design brief.”  Mr. Luke Gibbons, BAM.

Situated between Greenwich Street and Washington Street, the existing building at 60-74 Gansevoort Street has been refurbished and extended. The full project, at 46-74 Gansevoort Street, is expected to feature roughly 100,000 square feet of retail space. 

Aurora Capital Associate and William Gottlieb Real Estate are the developers for this project. 60 – 74 Gansevoort has been beautifully preserved and extended by BKSK Architects, keeping the historic style of the meatpacking district, while adding a modern twist.

The Meatpacking District

Over the past 20 years, the Meatpacking District in New York has been transformed into one of the most vibrant, upmarket destinations in the city. It is full of historical architecture and contemporary structures.

Fashion designers, architects, artists, restaurateurs, world-renowned stylists and corporate headquarters have moved in alongside the existing meatpacking plants.

It is situated near the High Line. A 1.45-mile-long elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail created on an old New York Central Railroad.

The Challenge

The challenges we faced on  60 – 74 Gansevoort was to provide a thermally enhanced window system that could withstand the harsh winter climate of New York. An excellent acoustic performance was also required, to block out noise from the busy Gansevoort district. Aesthetically, the aluminum window systems had to integrate with the historical architecture surrounding the meatpacking district.  

The APA Facade Systems team is committed to excellent environmental practice towards a more sustainable future. Our aluminum glazing profiles are designed and manufactured to conform with industry environmental standards, helping you achieve a silver, gold or platinum LEED certification.

Thermally Enhanced Window System

Our thermally enhanced ST70 Hi window system was chosen for it’s durability, flexability and acoustic values. Picture windows, curved windows and tilt & turn windows were all installed on this project by Diversified Glass and Storefronts, complete with all window jewellery. Our floor to ceiling window system is the perfect solution to increase natural light and provide trickle or purge ventilation.

The Roy has a beautiful contemporary style, exquisite amenities and unrivaled views across Halifax. Designed by IBI Group, the facade treatment of the tower is handled in two distinct ways. The east and south elevations are treated with undulating articulated aluminum curtain wall and the north and west elevations will be brick-clad with a fenestration pattern, like the neighboring Johnston Building.
