This is a small little mixed-use building called Graham Street Lofts. With 12 residential units and some ground floor commercial, the infill building sits in the Eliot neighborhood of Northern Portland. Residential units start at ~$324k and each home is energy efficient and modern inside. The R-30, 10-inch thick PerformWall ICFs are made of recycled polystyrene and cement and help to keep the interiors quiet. Combine the efficient envelope with hydronic radiant floors and overall home energy use is quite low, too. Additionally, Graham Street Lofts has some of the following green amenities and finishes:
River North Properties LLC is planning to develop a LEED Certified, condo/retail project for Denver’s River North ("RiNo") neighborhood. Named Beleza, a Brazilian Portuguese word for "beauty", this luxurious green community is modeled after the Brazilian city of Curitiba. Like Curitiba, Beleza will focus on sustainable lifestyle, eco-friendly development, and planning that cuts pollution and waste while improving the quality of life for residents. It will also have smart amenities, such as biometric fingerprint access, climate-controlled window blinds, power outlets in parking spaces, and digital screen controlled integrated lighting, communications, and A/V systems.
