EcoUrban's LEED Platinum Home + Missouri's Newest Modular Developer [Updated]

Ecourban


Being Green Can Be Easy.  EcoUrban Homes Proves It.  The first of several up and coming EcoUrban homes was recently completed, and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay was on location to celebrate the grand opening.  It just so happens that this home is probably one of the greenest homes in Missouri — it has obtained LEED Platinum rating.  Located at 3140 Pennsylvania Avenue in St. Louis, this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, modular home has a bamboo stairs, fiber cement board siding, double-pane low-e windows, R-40 Icynene insulation in ceilings and floors, built-in security system and recycling center, solid wheat board interior doors, ultra-low VOC paints, dual-flush high-efficiency toilets, and Energy Star lighting and appliances, to name a few green amenities.

Also, it’s notable that EcoUrban is aiming for LEED Silver certification, at the very least, for all future homes.  To me, this is another example of the business case for green structures.  Every week it seems there’s another company making the commitment to build exclusively green structures.  This is a good thing and a trend that will continue.

    Nice place, thanks Preston. Decent looking house and I noticed on the Flickr caption it says the house did get LEED Platinum certified which makes it instantly even better looking. Very cool.
    Oh, by the way, I’m a music nut too and I was pretty impressed you knew who Spider John Koerner was.
