^ If they want a slice of Suburbia, they could always just go to Suburbia.

The geothermal energy at the Bushwick hotel will come from around 60 bore holes that will go around 300 to 500 feet deep and contain the geothermal pipes. Those pipes will all connect to a larger pipe that then runs to heat pumps in the hotel, creating a geothermal loop, Liberis said.

The closed loop uses the constant heat of the water underground (which stays at around 55 degrees year-round) for cooling in summer and heating in winter by conducting a heat transfer through the geothermal pipes and heat pumps. In summer, heat is pulled from hot air in the hotel and transferred into the ground to cool the hotel. In winter, heat is drawn from the ground to warm the hotel.
