Marc Jacobs going green?
… well it appears his new home will be at least. According to Luxist and Luxuo renown designer Marc Jacobs is purchasing a $13 million 4,500 sq foot townhouse in the ecologically friendly Superior Ink Development in NYC’s West Village. The development features both a tower with condos and townhouses that are registered with the U.S. Green Building Council and are expected to receive LEED Silver certification.
The townhouse features a private elevator serving all floors, a rear terrace, a roof terrace and all the most modern electronic conveniences. Deluxe amenities include a private screening room and entertainment lounge, a fitness center, and 24-hour valet parking.
Perhaps these green surroundings will inspire Mr. Jacobs to look at organic cotton or peace silk for his creations and maybe even some treetap vegetal leather from the Amazon Rainforest to his handbags and Louis Vuitton luggage…..
