There are two one-bedroom units, six two-bedroom units, and two three-bedroom units. Apartments range in price to be affordable for very low and low income households.

  • constructing the units with insulated concrete forms;
  • installing solar panels to offset electric usage;
  • constructing Energy Star rated buildings;
  • using cement board siding instead of vinyl;
  • recycling the demolition materials and waste from the construction where possible;
  • utilizing low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) paints and caulks;
  • installing bamboo flooring instead of carpeting;
  • using high efficiency toilets, faucets, and shower-heads;
  • utilizing compact LED lighting;
  • recycling collection areas in each unit.
