New York Climate Exchange

Expected to open near Yankee Pier in 2028, the physical expression of NYCE on Governors Island will complement NYCE's programs, serving as a living laboratory that itself is a subject of study. The entire campus has been influenced by Georgia Tech's experience with green infrastructure and our Living Building: The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design.

Like The Kendeda Building, NYCE's physical structures are being envisioned to showcase regenerative, accessible, and innovative design, engineering, and operations solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support climate resilience.

The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design is the first building in Georgia and 28th in the world to earn Living Building Challenge (LBC) certification, the world’s most ambitious and holistic green building achievement. Rather than being less bad for the environment, The Kendeda Building fosters regenerative and restorative relationships amongst humans and nature where people give back more to the environment than they take.
