Green Building at the Townhomes is a comprehensive and common sense approach to environmental responsibility. The design maximizes green space, minimizes the use of energy and other public utilities, and empowers healthy lifestyles.
To create more green space cars are limited to the street edge. More landscape, combined with porous paving, soaks in rain refresh the aquifer. Public water use is reduced by an on-site well, and an on-site anaerobic septic system creates the potential to re-use all waters in the garden. Inside the buildings, the design creates natural cooling and airflow, minimizing the use of AC; and the Roof Terrace accommodates solar panels.
